Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 046, Dr. Nick Kapur (Rutgers University-Camden) Kapur, Nick; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Kapur resituates the 100th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration into the global revolution of 1968, retracing government designs for the ceremony and outlining the opposition of academic historians. We discuss the context of public protest in postwar Japan, popular reactions to shifting geopolitics, and the actions and motivations of student protestors before comparing the making and meaning of the 100th anniversary to the 150th.
