Conference on Prisoners of War and Civilian Internees from the Viewpoint of East Asia

last modified Apr 11, 2018 09:34 AM

On Friday evening, 16 March, the conference on Prisoners of War and Civilian Internees from the Viewpoint of East Asia opened with a keynote from Dr. Mahon Murphy. The opening lecture emphasized the necessity of looking at the non-European theatres of war to more fully grasp the impact of how prisoners and their treatment affected the world at large and the future of warfare.

The following day, 17 March, Japanese and European scholars exchanged ideas about their research concerning prisoners and civilians in captivity during the first half of the 20th Century. A full program and pictures from the conference are below.

This conference was co-sponsored by Dr. Barak Kushner's ERC grant on The Dissolution of the Japanese Empire and the Struggle for Legitimacy in Postwar East Asia, and Dr. NARAOKA Sochi's Spirits-funding from Kyoto University in Japan.
