Seeking Inspiration: How the Japanese Mountain Witch Encourages Artistic Creativity
In this interview, renowned scholar Dr. Rebecca Copeland shares insights and thoughts on literary, artistic, and scholarly encounters with an elusive figure from Japanese folklore-the yamamba. The yamamba has been interpreted as a fearful ogre, a terrifying trickster, a kind granny who aids those in need, or simply a woman who seeks solitude beyond the boundaries of family. PhD. Student Katie Stephens will talk to Dr. Copeland about her forthcoming volume, Yamamba: In Search of the Japanese Mountain Witch (co-edited with Linda C. Ehrlich, Stone Bridge Press, 2021). Sponsored by the Ei’ichi Shibusawa-Seigo Arai Endowed Professorship in Japanese Studies and UMSL Global
