Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 014, Dr. David Anderson (University of British Columbia) Anderson, David, 1966-; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Anderson appraises historical memory in Japan and the reactions of visitors to Japanese history museums, particularly of the Shōwa Period. We discuss the interplay of museum visitor and curator in museum exhibitions, social roots of the recent nostalgia for the Showa Period, and the interrelationship of historical narrative, cultural production, and popular memory.
