Episode 15 - Dr. Marcia Yonemoto (Colorado)

The Meiji at 150 Podcast

In this episode, Dr. Marcia Yonemoto (Colorado) stresses the continuities between the early modern and Meiji Periods, resituating the Meiji Restoration and the Meiji Charter Oath in particular as products of early modern concerns and conditions.  With this in mind, we evaluate the historical usefulness of categories like "modern" and "early modern" in the Japanese context, date the beginning of Japanese "early modernity," and discuss insights from Meiji-era diarists.

Marcia Yonemoto, “The Problem of Women in Early Modern Japan” (U of California Press, 2016)

New Books in History

Were women a problem in early modern Japan? If they were, what was the nature of the problem they posed? For whom, and why? Marcia Yonemoto‘s new book explores these questions in a compelling study that brings together the public discourse on women in the Tokugawa period (including prescriptive literature, instruction manuals for women, representations of women in fiction and drama, woodblock prints, and book illustrations) and the corpus of extant prose writing by early modern women and their families (including Diaries, memoirs, letters from the late 17th through mid-19th centuries). The Problem of Women in Early Modern Japan (University of California Press, 2016) argues that Tokugawa women’s actions were significant and powerful. When we read (or reread) the works of Tokugawa-period writers and critics, Yonemoto argues, we see a picture of women’s lives in which women were far from passive, especially in the context of a stem family structure within which women acted as in-laws, adoptees, laborers, household managers, and de facto heirs, among other roles. This is a fascinating study informing the fields of women’s history, gender studies, early modern studies, and Japanese history. Learn more about your ad choices.
