Join cultural historian and BBC broadcaster Dr Christopher Harding as he presents a surprising new perspective on the modernisation of Japan, a story which lies at the heart of his book Japan Story: In Search of a Nation, 1850 to the Present.
Japan’s rapid emergence as a global power since the 1850s has sparked many cultural anxieties, and fierce debates over what the modern nation should look like. In this fresh and fascinating approach Japan Story zooms in on the resistance by artists, writers and activists whose actions strike at the structures of mainstream Japan, even today.
This event with be followed by a Q&A session and a book signing with Christopher.
