Asahi Conference, June 2010
On June 4, 2010 Dr Barak Kushner was invited to the Asahi Newspaper headquarters in Tokyo to take part in a symposium with Harvard Professor Emeritus Akira Iriye and other scholars to discuss the role and use of the Japanese media over the last eighty years of Japanese history.
Dr Kushner provided comments, in Japanese, in front of an audience of 400 at the Asahi conference hall. The newspaper company sponsored the event in celebration of their new volume that analyzes internal company archives and interviews regarding their impact on the evolution of prewar and postwar Japanese history.
