Japan Story: In Search of a Nation with Dr Christopher Harding

Thursday 1st November 2018 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

*Due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been cancelled, we apologise for any inconvenience caused*

Join cultural historian and BBC broadcaster Dr Christopher Harding as he presents a surprising new perspective on the modernisation of Japan, a story which lies at the heart of his book Japan Story: In Search of a Nation, 1850 to the Present.

Japan’s rapid emergence as a global power since the 1850s has sparked many cultural anxieties, and fierce debates over what the modern nation should look like. In this fresh and fascinating approach Japan Story zooms in on the resistance by artists, writers and activists whose actions strike at the structures of mainstream Japan, even today.

“Masterly in the intermeshing of the personal and the political, the quotidian and the spiritual, the psycho-analytic with the journalistic, the long-historical with the contemporary.”

– Neil MacGregor

This event with be followed by a Q&A session and a book signing with Christopher.

 

Tickets: £5 standard / £25 including a copy of Japan Story (RRP £25).
