Linguistic Excess in Japanese Media

Claire Maree

Studies in Language and Gender

  • Critically analyzes the figure of the queerqueen in a diversity of Japanese media texts from conversational dialogues (taidan) to parody animations
  • Proposes the notion of "language labor" as central to our understanding of how styles are entextualized, mediatized, and commodified
  • Examines tropes of censorship and voyeurism in contemporary print and audiovisual media
