Workshop with Professor Sun Ge

Date: 29-30 April 2014

On April 29 and 30 Professor Sun Ge (孙歌) from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (中国社会科学院文学研究所) offered us two intensive days of lectures and discussion, in Japanese and Chinese.

On April 29 Dr. Sun discussed the nature of postwar Japanese thought, focusing on Takeuchi Yoshimi and Maruyama Masao, and touching on issues of war responsibility and concepts of how Japanese view history and World War II.

On 30 April she continued her in-depth approach and spoke at length on postwar Sino-Japanese relations and her analysis of why this important political relationship remains rocky.
