CJS Thursday Lecture Series | Pre-modern Japanese Book History
Japan has a history of books since the 7th century, and a huge number of books still remain today. We will explore the secrets of the variety of Japanese books by comparing Western and Eastern books.
Takahiro Sasaki is Professor at the Keio Institute of Oriental Classics at Keio University. He specializes in the history of Japanese books and was the lead educator for the FutureLearn MOOC courses on “Japanese Culture Through Rare Books” and “The Art of Washi Paper in Japanese Rare Books”.
This lecture is made possible with the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.
