Kyoko Omori

Kyoko Omori, associate professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures (Japanese), published a book chapter in an academic anthology, Routledge Handbook of Japanese Cinema.

Titled “‘Inter-Mediating’ Global Modernity: Benshi Film Narrators, Multisensory Performance, and Fan Culture,” the first part of her essay provides an overview of the multi-faceted performing art of benshi narration, which arose in direct response to the arrival of film as a new, modern artistic medium during the early 20th century in Japan, thereby helping to form a new modern soundscape.
