The Legacy of World War II in Postwar Japan
ALIT 215
Spring 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: EAST 215

In 1956, the Japanese Economic Planning Agency famously declared, "the 'postwar' is over." Indeed, by that time, the national economy had made a remarkable recovery since the end of World War II. Others place the end of the postwar with Emperor Hirohito's death in 1989. Still, was the postwar truly over for Japan? This seminar aims to tackle this dilemma of the postwar and assess how the war and the American occupation are remembered by the Japanese, and how they continue to reverberate politically and culturally, 60 years after Japan regained its independence.
