International Japanese Modern Art History Symposium

SOAS, University of London, will hold an international symposium on Japanese Modern Art and its History on June 19-20, 2013. The aim is to give insights into the changing boundaries and concepts of Japanese and wider East Asian art in the 19th century. In particular, the symposium aims to review prevailing assumptions such as the caesura between Edo and Meiji, the birth of Modern Art and the Historiography of Japanese Art as a whole, and the fragmentation of Japanese from East Asian Art in the 19th century. Questions of what kind of methodology should be used to re-construct an Asian art history will also be addressed.

Date: 19 June 2013 – 20 June 2013
Venue: SOAS, University of London
