Embodied VulnerAbilities in Literature and Film includes a collection of essays exploring the ways in which recent literary and filmic representations of vulnerability depict embodied forms of vulnerability across languages, media, genres, countries, and traditions in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The volume gathers 12 chapters penned by scholars from Japan, the USA, Canada, and Spain which look into the representation of vulnerability in human bodies and subjectivities. Not only is the array of genres covered in this volume significant- from narrative, drama, poetry, (auto)documentary, or film- in fiction and nonfiction, but also the varied cultural and linguistic coordinates of the literary and filmic texts scrutinized-from the USA, Canada, Spain, France, the Middle East, to Japan. Readers who decide to open the cover of this volume will benefit from becoming familiar with a relatively old topic- that of vulnerability- from a new perspective, so that they can consider the great potential of this critical concept anew.
