This interdisciplinary event invites scholars of Russia and Japan to address the topic of Russo-Japanese cultural relations as a challenge to traditional binary views on the knowledge exchange between West and East as that between “colonizer” and “colonized,” seen exclusively through the prism of political and ideological hierarchies and power relations.


Co-sponsored by Japan Foundation, Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, Comparative Literature, Stevanovich Institute on the Foundation of Knowledge, CEERES, the Franke Institute, and CEAS.
