● The Society for the Study of Japonisme International Symposium 2019
“Japonisme on the Move: Travel, Migration, and Other Movements of People across Places”

We have reached full capacity, it is no longer possible to register for the symposium. 

チラシ2019英語版表 チラシ2019英語版裏

■ Date: Saturday October 5, 2019

■ Venue:   The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo

■ Organized by: The Society for the Study of Japonisme / The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo / The Ebara Hatakeyama Memorial Foundation

■ Language:    Japanese or English (with simultaneous translation)

■ Participation Fee: Free

■ Symposium Outline:  With the opening of Japan’s borders in the mid-nineteenth century, diplomats, oyatoi-gaikokujin [foreign advisors for the government], merchants and tourists began to visit the country. Describing in their journals and correspondences the cities, customs, craftsmanship and people they encountered during their journeys, these travelers also brought various craft objects home. At the same time, people moved from Japan to Europe and the United States, too, as businessmen, touring performers, students and migrants, each embodying the Other to the Western eyes. How did these intersecting human flows across the globe inform Japonisme? Shifting our focus to movements of people (from those of things, such as art and craft objects) will allow us to discover new and diverse sets of meanings in Japonisme from modern to contemporary periods.
The 2019 edition of the Society for the Study of Japonisme International Symposium seeks to encourage in-depth study and discussion on this Japonisme shaped by travels and movements.

The 6th Hatakeyama symposium (October 21• 22) Program

Theme: The network of people involved with Japonisme

During the latest years, the research concerning Japonisme has known various paths. It has become clear that not only painting and the decorative arts, but also literature, theatre and music have become the object of a growing interest. Furthermore, the subject of study is not only limited to France, Great-Brittain, and America; but has expanded towards other several Western countries. In this symposium, we would like to consider the keypersons who contributed to this expansion. We will look at people who used Japonisme as medium; people from younger generations who were influenced by these Japonisme works; and people who became the spill in the reciprocal influence from Japan to the West, and from the West to Japan; in order to clarify the expansion of Japonisme across the globe.
