This workshop aims to contribute to the interdisciplinary dialogue within the Triangle on the study of the Japanese empire and colonialism. Through short presentations and discussion, it will provide a forum for participants to share thoughts on new developments in the field and on ongoing projects. The study of modern East Asia through the lens of empire and colonialism is an expanding interdisciplinary field, which is indebted to particular approaches and materials/sources specific to each discipline. How do we use these tools to write and/or rewrite the Japanese empire? How does the Japanese empire make us rethink these tools? Participants include David Ambaras, Leo Ching, Richard Jaffe, Magdalena Kolodziej, Simon Partner, Morgan Pitelka, Sumathi Ramaswamy, and Gennifer Weisenfeld.
6 pm (dinner included if you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 3) in the Franklin Center, Room 240, Duke University, on April 7.
Sponsored by the Triangle Center for Japanese Studies
