Anglo-Japanese Cultural Relations, 1868-1950

Fri, March 9, 2012 | Tom Lea Rooms, HRC 3.206

2:45 PM - 4:30 PM

Sheldon Garon PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

Sheldon Garon will discuss how the two 'island empires' emulated each other's institutions and thinking at critical junctures.  Not only did the Japanese state learn from Victorian Britain's efforts to mold a thrifty, hardworking populace, but the British in turn were inspired by Japanese 'national efficiency' in the Russo-Japanese War.  Garon is the Nissan Professor of History and East Asian Studies at Princeton University.
