The Global Education Office hosted the second Lecture Series on August 28.

Dr. Satoko Hiura, an associate professor at the National Institute for the Humanities, National Museum of Japanese History, Research Division, gave an invited talk, entitled “Intended break and unexpected continuation: School documents in/after Japan’s colonial rule.

By closely examining the content of historical materials, Dr. Hiura explained how Japanese educational ideals are reflected on Taiwanese and Korean school documents in relation to the imperial regime in the rise and fall of the Japanese Empire.

We have more lectures coming up in the next months. For the latest information on Lecture Series, please visit our website regularly.
