Nov. 21-23, 2019: “50 Years Later, Another Mishima?” Paris Symposium

I attended the international symposium “50 Years Later, Another Mishima?” held at the University of Paris (formerly Paris-Diderot University) from November 21-23, 2019. Prof. Thomas Garcin, one of the organizers of the event, wrote:

“The aims of this event are threefold. By focusing on unknown or neglected texts, we would first like to emphasise the variety within Mishima’s works. Indeed, the novelist explored all sorts of genres (popular novels, essays, plays, etc.) and some of his most original works of fiction remain untranslated. By highlighting unstudied traits of Mishima’s works (its ambiguities, humour, irony, taste for kitsch and camp, etc.), we hope to promote new readings of the author. Finally, we wish to investigate the reception of Mishima‘s work, by examining how they were translated.”
