World War II and Global Memory Culture: The Comfort Women in Perspective
As part of the 2020-21 EASC Guest Speaker Series, USC Professor, Benjamin Uchiyama has invited Carol Gluck, George Sansom Professor of Japanese History at Columbia University, to give a lecture on Japan and the politics of memory in the Second World War. She will explore a summary of the five important changes that have taken place in war memory over 75 years, using the comfort women issue as an example. Prof. Gluck specializes in modern Japan from the late 19th century to the present, international relations, World War II, and history-writing and public memory in Asia and the West. This lecture will tie in with Prof. Uchiyama's HIST 107: Introduction to the History of Japan and GESM 120: Anime, Comics and the Japanese Experience of the Second World War courses.
