20th Century Japan Research Award for 2017-2018
This two-day workshop will examine the complex—often controversial—issue of public memory in post-war Japan. Day 1 explores the roles of haunting and narrative in the production of sites of memory and includes visits to Aoyama Cemetery and Yasukuni Shrine. Day 2 focuses on wartime visual and material culture, including the screening of wartime films and an interactive lecture. These tours and screening will be followed by critical reflections, facilitated by cultural geographers, film studies specialists and historians.
The application deadline is January 31, 2017
