Dear H-Japan list member,
The Department of East Asian Studies – Japanese Studies at University of Vienna would like to draw your attention to the upcoming u:japan lecture:
“Tensions of Making and the Art of Breaking: Putting Salt Fields to Rest in 19th Century Japan”
Date and time: Thursday 2022-01-20, 18:30~20:00 (CET, UTC/GMT +1h)
The Zoom Meeting will be open from 18:15 (CET).
In this virtual lecture, Aleksandra Kobiljski (French National Centre for Scientific Research) will draw on a preliminary reading of The Secrets of Salt Making 塩製秘録, an 1816 salt-making manual by a little-known Japanese salt-maker Miura Genzô 三浦源蔵 (?-1835). The lecture seeks to address the change in production dynamics in the Seto Inland Sea region in the first half of the 19th century. In so doing, this talk contributes to the rethinking of the nature of Japan's early industry and conceptualization of profit.
