  • History, Fiction, and Japan
  • Prof Amy Stanley (Northwestern University)
  • This talk, from a Japan historian whose work has often been miscategorized as fiction, considers the opportunities and dangers of borrowing the narrative strategies of the novel, and presents some ideas about why fiction and history are so often confused when we talk and write about Japan.

  • Rescuing Art History from the Nation: Late Chosŏn Korea between Europe and Edo Japan
  • Prof J.P. Park (University of Oxford)
  • By introducing evidence that testifies to the late Chosŏn public’s active interest in Japanese art, this paper will point to the neglected exchange of art and ideas between early modern Korea and Japan, and expose how age-old academic conventions and nationalisms remain firmly fixed in the study of East Asian art history.
