ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Abstract: »Hisako Kinukawa ("Re-covering, Re-membering and Re-conciling the History of 'Comfort Women'") focuses on the "comfort women" who were forced into prostitution during the Second World War by the Japanese government. As a Japanese woman, from the belly of the Empire as it were, in solidarity with the abused women in Asia, Kinukawa writes in support of an alternative history in which the future generations of Japan, and beyond, will both re-member and re-concile the violence committed against "comfort women" in the name of the empire. Kinukawa calls for both solidarity and responsibility on behalf of the out-of-place comfort women.« (Jione Havea. »Welcome.« Out of Place: Doing Theology on the Crosscultural Brink.
