The Sarashina Diary: A New Collaborative Translation Study

Sonja Arntzen, Professor Emerita, University of Toronto will present on this new translation of Sarashina nikki produced with Professor Moriyuki Ito of Gakushuin Women's University. The Sarashina Diary: A Women's Life in Eleventh-Century Japan (Columbia University Press, 2014) recounts the life of Japanese noblewoman over a forty-year period, offers a portrait of the writer as reader, and explores the power of reading to shape one's expectations and aspirations. This talk will discuss the diary itself and the process of collaboration that produced this new translation study.
