Please note: Due to updated guidance from the university in regards to the COVID policy, this lecture will be only in a webinar format. Please register here to attend: https://myumi.ch/pZZ1r

This talk will examine the history and significance of toilet paper as both a medium and theme of literary production. While the main focus of the talk will be Japan, it will also regard the topic in a broader context beyond Japan's literary and cultural tradition.
