In Fall 2019, a new multi-year research, networking, and resource-development initiative, “Studies of the Empire of Japan and Its Legacies: New Directions and New Perspectives,” will be launched on the UHM campus. The purpose of the initiative is to create a new academic platform at the University of Hawaiʻi to promote international research and collaboration, development of scholarly and public resources, and cross-border exchange of scholarly knowledge and information on the studies the Empire of Japan (1868-1945) and its legacies, and, to that end, to make use of unique strengths of the University of Hawaiʻi as the world’s premier research institution for the advancement of Japan, Asia, Hawaiʻi, and Pacific Studies.
A two-day preinaugural symposium is scheduled on March 12-13, 2019, featuring four scholars who specialize in studies of languages in the outlying areas of the former Japanese empire. Please join us for a wide-ranging discussion on the theme of the preinaugural event as well as the overall mission of the new initiative.
