Research Presentation at EAJS

This is an entry posted by Princess Akiko of Mikasa, a Postdoctoral Fellow.

I presented my research at the 13th International Conference of EAJS held at Tallinn University in Estonia.


Panel: Displaying ‘Japan’ in the West: Nineteenth century to the present


Discussant: Angus LOCKYER (SOAS, University of London) 
What is the History of Japanese Art? – Displaying Japanese Antiquities in the British Museum –  (Princess Akiko of Mikasa, Ritsumeikan University) 
Japan at International Exhibitions, 1873-1933  (ITŌ Mamiko,Sacred Heart University)  
How Japan has been exhibited outside Japan? (YOSHIDA Kenji,National Museum of Ethnology)  



I appreciate the privilege of having had a large turnout – so large that we needed to use extra seats – and of having been able to exchange fruitful discussions with the audience.
