12 Questions with David Howell: The New Cambridge History of Japan, Vol. II
Featuring: David L. Howell, Robert K. and Dale J. Weary Professor of Japanese History, Harvard University
Interviewer: Kären Wigen, Frances & Charles Field Professor in History, Stanford University
With the publication of the highly-anticipated New Cambridge History of Japan Volume II: Early Modern Japan in Asia and the World, c. 1580–1877, please join us via Zoom for an interview with Volume II editor David Howell (Robert K. and Dale J. Weary Professor of Japanese History, Harvard University). It has been over thirty years since the original Cambridge History of Japan first came out. The forthcoming release of Volume II of the new 3-volume set gives us the opportunity to reflect on how the history of early modern Japan has been traditionally conceptualized and consider how and why current trends in history writing may be shifting these views. Professor Kären Wigen (Frances & Charles Field Professor in History, Stanford University) will interview Professor Howell about a wide range of questions about the past, present, and future writing of the histories of early modern Japan. There will be significant time for audience questions and discussion. This event is not to be missed!
