Free One-Day Workshop - Japan after 1945: New Alliances and New Thinking

Session(s) date

Session(s) date: 
Saturday, October 26, 2019 - 9:00am to 3:30pm

The USC U.S. - China Institute, Japan Society New York, and National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) are offering a complimentary one-day workshop on Japan at USC for educators. 

With Japan’s defeat and occupation came significant political, economic and social change. In this day-long workshop, we’ll look at Japan’s new alliance with the United States, its reintegration into the global and regional economies and institutions, and at the business and cultural changes that emerged. Within two decades, Japan had the world’s sixth largest economy, had hosted the Summer Olympics, and had several films win or be nominated for Academy Awards.

There is no cost to participate. All materials, refreshments, parking, and lunch will be provided.

There is another free workshop on November 16, 9-3:30pm, that focuses on Contemporary Japan and U.S.-Japan Relations. Teachers are encouraged to sign up and attend both workshops, but are also welcome to just attend one.
