Join us at the National Library of Australia for a presentation from 2022 National Library of Australia Fellow Dr Ryan Johnson.

Dr Ryan Johnson considers how the entanglement of Russian and French culture appeared in 20th century Japanese literature. Rarely understanding ‘French’ and ‘Russian’ in the same sense, Japanese writers constructed competing analogies for how Japanese literature related to the other two. This talk offers another way of thinking about reception and influence both in modern Japanese literature and world literature.

Entry is free, but bookings are essential.

For those unable to make it to Canberra for the event, it will be livestreamed online via the Library’s Facebook page. No bookings are required to watch the online stream.
