Gender in the Japanese Administrative Codes, An Ongoing Project
Prof. Joan Piggott, History Department, USC
I will report on the ongoing project for which members (Yoshie, Ijuin, Piggott) are translating and annotating relevant sections of the Yôrô-era administrative code (ryô), two parts of which are now finished for publication. I will highlight particular challenges of the project and why I think such multilingual translation/annotation projects are critically important for the study of Japanese history.
