Japanese Modern and Contemporary Literature
Chiara Pavone received her B.A. in Asian History and Culture from the University of Bologna, and her M.A. in Japanese Language and Literature from Ca’ Foscari University (Venice). Her research interests include disaster literature, Japanese contemporary thought and postmodernism, but she focuses particularly on the new narrative trends appearing in post-Fukushima literature and how they appear to shape the collective imaginary of catastrophe.
