“The Way of the Samurai for a Modern Japan” with Guest Speaker Sarah Thal
The Way of the Samurai (bushido) is often seen as a centuries-old traditional code of Japan’s elite warrior class. But not only did the idea of bushido only originate around 1600, but proponents also reinvented it in the 1890s, amidst rapid industrialization, electoral politics, controversies over women’s rights, and the tensions surrounding the first Sino-Japanese War. In this talk, we examine some of the reasons and ways Japanese reimagined and promoted a Way of the Samurai for their modern age.March 21, 2023
