Kyoko Omori

Kyoko Omori, associate professor of Japanese in the East Asian Languages and Literatures Department, published a chapter in an academic anthology about Edogawa Rampo (1894-1965), a pioneering Japanese mystery writer and theorist of popular literature.

Titled “The Soundscape of Modernity: Edogawa Rampo and Voice (Rampo, koe, modaniti no oto-fukei),” her essay appears in Edogawa Rampo: The New Century (Edogawa Rampo Shin-seiki) from February 2019. The article utilizes archival materials from Rampo’s personal collection as well as essays and other works to illuminate his response to the shifting roles of sound and voice in modern Japan.
