Saturday 15th December 2018, 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 pm.
Waseda University, Building 3, 7th Floor, Room 704
"Run by the Institute of 20th Century Media at Waseda Institute of Political Economy, Waseda University, this Symposium will hold three sessions on the theme “Journalism and propaganda on the Second Sino-Japanese War”. Japanese, Chinese, British, American and Soviet propaganda and journalism will be discussed in nine presentations during this day-long Symposium.
"The Symposium represents an attempt to examine the transnational agencies and actors operating to influence Chinese and Western publics during a conflict that was, debatably, the precursor to WWII. Journalistic actors and entrepreneurs worked in the gaps between multiple overlapping imperialisms, as defined by the accumulation of over 40 treaties between China and the world since the 1840s.
"Given the liberation of China by the Communist Party of China that followed the defeat of Japan by the Western Allies, the pronouncements and positions of the competing wings of Communism, and the increasingly defensive voices of Nationalist China were all in contention across the broad spectrum of political choices and voices that will be considered in this forum."
Language: Japanese, with some English support.
