Please note: Due to updated guidance from the university in regards to the COVID policy, this lecture will be only in a webinar format. Please register here to attend:

This talk will examine the history and significance of toilet paper as both a medium and theme of literary production. While the main focus of the talk will be Japan, it will also regard the topic in a broader context beyond Japan's literary and cultural tradition.

She received her PhD in Japanese literature from Stanford University (2021) and a PhD in Comparative Literature from Osaka University (2015). Her research focuses on representations of excrement in modern and contemporary Japanese literature.

This colloquium series is made possible by the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.
