Suter's "From Jusuheru to Jannu"

The following article is now available to all viewers as part of a sample issue of Mechademia on Project Muse:

Rebecca Suter. "From Jusuheru to Jannu: Girl Knights and Christian Witches in the Work of Miuchi Suzue." Mechademia 4 (2009): 241-256.

Suter, a professor of Japanese Studies at the University of Sydney, offers a summary and discussion of Suzue's two-part manga Shirayuri no kishi (1975, Knight of the White Lily), a manga adaptation of the life of Joan of Arc. She also presents some interesting comments on the representations of warrior women in manga.
