Faculty Coffeehouse: Japan in Love and Hate: Relating to America after World War II

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Tatkon Center for First-Year Students, 3343

Five years after Japan’s surrender in World War II, the United States and Japan forged an alliance so powerful it remains in force today.  Beneath the polite exterior of that alliance lurk profound resentments, which Professor Roebuck, Department of History, will explore by keying in on racial and sexual tensions in U.S.-Japan relations.  Come learn about Japan and about Professor Roebuck’s spring lecture course, The World of Modern Japan.  Pizza served. All Tatkon coffeehouses are sponsored by Class of '63.
