The Legacy of WWII in Post-War Japan
ALIT 215
Spring 2013
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: EAST 215

In 1956, the Japanese Economic Planning Agency famously declared, "the 'post-war' is over." Indeed, by that time, the national economy had made a remarkable recovery since the end of WWII. Others place the end of the "post-war" with Emperor Hirohito's death in 1989. Still, was the "post-war" truly over for Japan? This seminar aims to tackle this dilemma of the "post-war" and assess how the war and the American occupation are remembered by the Japanese, and how they continue to reverberate politically and culturally, sixty years after Japan regained its independence.
