The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation has organized a book launch event for Dr Laura Moretti's 'Recasting the Past: An Early Modern "Tales of Ise" for Children'.
In this talk, Dr Moretti will explore this picture-book, examining how it adapts the The Tale of Ise for an eighteenth-century audience and investigating how it challenges our expectations towards children’s literature. The audience will also have the opportunity to engage with original Japanese picture-books published in the same period of Utagaruta no hajimari.
