As part of our Center for Japanese Studies 75th Anniversary programming, we are honored to hold a conversation with renowned historian and alumnus Harry Harootunian about his experiences within and beyond the field of Japanese studies. We will discuss topics including his experiences as a student at the University of Michigan, his perspective on the development of Japanese studies, and his forthcoming book on historical form and fascism in modern Japan. The conversation will be hosted by Reginald Jackson, Director of the Center for Japanese Studies, with audience Q/A to follow.

Harry Harootunian, Max Palevsky Professor of History at the University of Chicago and Research Associate of the Weatherhead East Asian Institute at Columbia University, has written and edited a number of books and essays on early modern and modern Japan, Marxism, and the theory of historical practice. His most recent book, Archaism and Actuality. Historical Form, Time and Fascism in Modern Japan, will be published and issued by Duke University Press next year. He is currently involved with two colleagues from other universities on a projected book relating to Marxism in Japan.

This lecture is made possible with the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.
