Japan: Then & Now – A Dialogues Seminar

January 28, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

In collaboration with the Carolina Asia Center,

Historians Morgan Pitelka and David Ambaras consider Japan’s complex relations with China, Korea, and others in the Asia-Pacific in the sixteenth century and twentieth centuries.  In particular, they will discuss wars and trade and the changing social relations that shaped these conflicts.  The seminar will conclude with a panel discussion with both of our scholars reflecting on ways that Japan has changed over this time period, and how the legacy of those evolutions is visible in Japan today.
