- EALC Speaker Series: Angry Goddesses and Feminist Fairytales: Kirino Natsuo’s Kojiki Sequel
EALC Speaker Series:
Angry Goddesses and Feminist Fairytales: Kirino Natsuo’s Kojiki Sequel
Speaker: Rebecca Copeland, Professor of Japanese Literature at Washington University in St. Louis
Time: January 30, Friday, 3 p.m.
Place: will be announced soon
"Angry Goddesses and Feminist Fairytales: Kirino Natsuo’s Kojiki Sequel"
(Abstract) In her creative re-telling of the Izanami-Izanagi myth sequence, Kirino Natsuo picks up where the Kojiki leaves off, inventing an afterlife for the female-goddess Izanami. Sealed forever in Yomi, the Japanese source texts have very little more to say about Izanami. Rather, attention shifts to Izanagi and his offspring. But what, Kirino wonders, becomes of the goddess and her parting pledge to take a 1000 lives a day from the world of the living? Why is it that only the female deity is consigned to the realm of death, while her male consort, free to travel, goes on to produce the deities who will shape the imperial line? And finally, how does the positioning of the female deity predict the status of real-world women? In Joshinki (The Goddess Chronicle), her 2008 sequel to the Kojiki, Kirino explores not only the psychology of Japan’s primal female, but the way depictions of her have influenced her mortal progeny. This paper will briefly situate The Goddess Chronicle alongside Kirino’s more realistic fiction, explore the way Izanami has been received over time, and provide a general overview of feminist approaches to myth retellings.
