Imagining China in Medieval Japan: The Case of Fujiwara no Teika
Start Date: 3/25/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 3/25/2013End Time: 7:00 PM
Event Description:
For writers, clerics, officials, and others living in Japan around the turn of the thirteenth century, China—which they referred to using multiple dynastic names of the past and contemporary present—functioned simulanteously as the matrix of a shared regional culture and as a contrastive background against which patterns of Japanese cultural formation could be discerned.
This lecture will discuss the imagining of contemporary and ancient China in various works written by the influential Japanese poet and courtier Fujiwara no Teika (1162-1241), including his kambun diary, Meigetsuki, and the Tale of Matsura, a pseudo-historical poetic narrative written in Japanese and set in Tang China.
