Nationalism and Gender

This is written by a sociologist and Japan's "most famous feminist", Chizuko Ueno. A discursive battle over how Japan's history should be remembered constitutes the most recent, and perhaps the most explosive, round in a struggle over the legitimacy of different "narrator's" understandings of the past and its focus on the "comfort women" issue. Feminist theorist Chizuko Ueno confronts head on, in her usual lucid and hard-hitting style, the various actors in the debate. She skillfully cuts through the argument of the neo-nationalist "historical revisionists" who have attempted to deny or minimize the reality of the former "comfort women". Ueno's equally biting treatment of her natural allies - left-wing historians and feminist supporters of the "comfort women" - has also made the book highly controversial.
UENO Chizuko is a leading Japanese feminist scholar and Professor Emeritus at the University of Tokyo. Her areas of specialization include gender theory, women’s studies and family sociology. After graduating from the Graduate School of Kyoto University, she served as Associate Professor at Heian Jogakuin Junior College, Visiting Researcher at the University of Chicago and Associate Professor at Kyoto Seika University. Her overseas appointments include Visiting Professor at the University of Bonn and at the University of Mexico. She became Associate Professor at the Faculty of Letters, University of Tokyo, in 1993, and then Professor in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Tokyo, in 1995. In recent years, she has been involved in research on aged care.
