Sōseki’s Diversity: A Conference

Scholars from three continents will gather at the University of Michigan to reflect on the legacy of Natsume Sōseki (1867–1916), Japan’s most widely read and intensively studied modern novelist.

In nine panels over three days, with keynotes by John Nathan and Tawada Yoko, the conference will add new voices to a century of scholarship on Sōseki, reflecting on his place in modern Japanese literature and in world literature.

The conference is free and open to the public. For more information or to register for the conference, visit the Asian Languages and Cultures’s site.
