Abstract

"Meat and the Millennium" examines U.S. millennial discourses of race, gender and family in Ruth Ozeki's 1998 novel, My Year of Meats. This article focuses on the construction of family as a site of domestication of U.S. 1990s liberal ideologies of multicultural diversity and liberal feminism. It grounds the narration of American womanhood as a model for Japanese women at the turn of the millennium in the history of the role of feminist discourses in the post-World War II U.S. occupation of Japan.
