Event: Modern Japan History Workshop on March 8 with Elsa Gonay

Please join us for the next Modern Japan History Workshop on March 8th at 6:00 pm. Our presenter this month will be Elsa Gonay (Geneva University), who will give a talk titled "The Konoe Affair: Former Prime-Minister Konoe Fumimaro under fire from the Japanese press." Please see below for an abstract of her presentation.

For those unfamiliar with the MJHW, it was founded in 1998 in order to provide Tokyo-based historians of modern Japan with an opportunity to discuss their research in an informal, English-language setting.
