Title:“Why It Matters: The long-term impact of the protest cycle of the late 1960s-early 1970s on Japanese society today,” by Dr. Patricia Steinhoff, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, UH Mānoa
Date Issued:28 Oct 2020
Abstract:In this talk Patricia Steinhoff will discuss the major effects of this period of extreme protest activity and how it still reverberates in contemporary Japan, based on her decades-long study of the Red Army groups that were among its most extreme participants. After a quick overview of the dynamics and major events of the protest cycle, she will assess its impacts on subsequent social movements and student activism in Japan, as well as on the Japanese criminal justice system. She is currently finishing a book in English on this subject, which updates and extends her 1991 Japanese publication Nihon Sekigunha: sono shakaigakuteki monogatari (Kawada Shōbō Shinsha, 1991, 1993), later republished as Shi eno Ideology: Nihon Sekigunha(Iwanami Modern Classics Series), 2003.
