Lisa Hofmann-Kuroda

Lisa Hofmann-Kuroda is a PhD candidate in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures. Her dissertation focuses on transnational Japanese literary writing from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, asking how accounts of alternative kinship systems generated by contemporaneous discourses of colonial anthropology informed critiques of the nuclear family found in the work of Natsume Soseki and Lafcadio Hearn, among others.
