New publication: Contemporary Japanese Women’s Theatre and Visual Arts: Performing Girls’ Aesthetics

Dr Nobuko Anan, Lecturer in Japanese studies, has recently had her book on the history of 'girls' aethetics' in Japanese art published by Palgrave.

This book traces the history of 'girls' aesthetics,' where adult Japanese women create art works about 'girls' that resist motherhood, from the modern to the contemporary period and their manifestation in Japanese women's theatrical and dance performance and visual arts including manga, film, and installation arts.

You can see full details on the publisher's website.

Dr Anan teaches on Japanese undergraduate programmes and the MA Comparative Literature.
