Interrogating Japan's Soft Power
Sat, February 25, 2006 • 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM • GEB 3.312, Dean's Conference Room, 3rd Floor
This interdisciplinary conference will explore historical and contemporary avenues of Japan's influence abroad. Departing from a narrow conception of soft power that focuses on popular culture, leading scholars of Japan have been invited to explore the roles of aesthetics, narrative, religion, science and national branding in generating soft power for Japan.
