Laura Hein, Professor of History specializes in the history of Japan in the 20th century and its international relations.
TOPIC: World War II was a devastating and transformational event in East Asia. The last decade has been an extremely active period of remembrance both within China, South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan and among the nations. This talk will discuss both official and private forms of commemoration and the messages they are designed to convey.
Light refreshments will be served.
