Soffermandosi su un rotolo giapponese del tardo Settecento, o forse dei primi dell’Ottocento, questo saggio esplora esplicazioni e rappresentazioni dei disastri naturali nell’«Età dei Lumi» e propone una storia intrecciata di reazioni post-traumatiche che si dipana attraverso culture emozionali lontane ma in contatto tra loro.

Focussing on a hanging scroll by Shiba Ko\kan (1747-1818), this essay sets out to explore how disasters, in particular earthquakes and fires, were understood and represented in “the Age of Light,” and how individuals and communities responded to them emotionally. Images of disasters, and ways of dealing with them, have formed part of “circulatory movements” over time and space, raising the question of the degree to which such responses were determined by transcultural entanglements.
