On March 5-6, Kyushu University Border Studies will host an international Workshop examining 'Heritage from the margins? Shuri Castle and the Politics of Memory', in conjunction with IMAP, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Cambridge, the Sainsbury Institute, and the University of East Anglia.
Across two days, a plenary discussion and three roundtable panels explore ongoing memorial contestation over Shuri Castle and its place within regional, national, and global narratives of meaning making.
Featuring researchers from Okinawa, Japan, and worldwide, the Workshop seeks to examine questions of memory, belonging, tradition, and preservation, as well as considering the significance of transnational heritage regimes for local sites of memory.
