Lyman, Gamberton (2018) '"No Reason To Fear Her Karma": Gender Variance in Japanese History and Culture.'

Full text not available from this repository.


From Buddhist folklore to Kabuki theatre to contemporary transgender lives, Japanese history and culture have been home to multiple forms of gender variance and cross-gender identities. Lyman Gamberton (SOAS, University of London) provides an introduction to the complexities of gender in the Japanese past, while arguing that historic and cultural forms of gender-variant practice should not automatically be linked to Japanese transgender identities today.
