Associate Professor of Japanese Kyoko Omori gave an invited talk at a symposium held at the University of Bonn on Nov. 30. The conference was titled “Film as Performing Art: Comparative History of Early Japanese and European Cinema.”

In her paper, “The Narrativizations of Dr. Caligari: Germany, the U.S., and Japan,” Omori discussed the ways in which the German Expressionist film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, was modified as it was exported to the U.S. and Japan in the 1920s. She also examined how narrative techniques used in live oral performances at Japanese movie theaters influenced popular literary work of the time.
