Reine Körper
The essay examines the regulation of prostitution, venereal disease, and intimacy during the U. S. occupation of Japan (1945–1952). In addition to a detailed analysis of medical regulatory practices in the early stage of the occupation period theessay explores the encounter between occupiers and occupied. It will be shown that bodies in their various forms, such as the Japanese “national body”, the bodies of Japanese woman, and the soldierly body of U. S. servicemen, mattered significantly. The practices of regulating these various bodies bore striking similarities to previous imperial power relations–both Japanese and American–and the essay will examine how they were exercised in everyday occupied Japan.
