Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 024, Prof. Peter Kornicki (University of Cambridge) Kornicki, Peter; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Prof. Kornicki challenges the narrative of the Meiji period as revolutionary, instead underlining continuities in literary tastes, practices, and writing through the 1880s. We discuss the origins, meaning of, and alternatives to the term “Restoration,” literary transitions in the mid-Meiji Period, and popular discontentment and protest.
