Art, Culture & Power in Pre-Modern Japan

When: Tue., Oct. 29, 4:30 p.m. 2013

It's fascinating to explore the isolated society of Japan in the days before its encounters with Admiral Perry, and the unique traditions and culture that developed during that time.In this ticketed event, UNC's Morgan Pitelka, associate professor of Asian studies and director of the Carolina Asia Center, explores Tokugawa Ieyasu. the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate (1603–1868). He helped found the institutions of the early modern state, and his participation in Japan's cultural practices helped lead to the establishment of these institutions. Improve your mind and impress friends with your knowledge of Japan! —Zack Smith
