Japan: Then & Now – A Dialogues Seminar
In collaboration with the Carolina Asia Center
JANUARY 28, 2017
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. Please note: This seminar will take place at the UNC School of Government.
