Meiji at 150

Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 083, Dr. Donna Brunero (National University of Singapore) Brunero, Donna; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Brunero places treaty ports in Japan leading up to and after the Meiji Restoration into an East Asian regional perspective, comparing life in treaty ports in Japan and China. We discuss cultural transformations and cultural hybridity in treaty ports, question popular visions of the treaty ports that render non-Westerners invisible, and reread newspaper coverage of the Meiji Restoration in the Chinese treaty port press.
