Of Power and Profit: American Seamen in Asian Waters
Photography Exhibit
Dates: October 5, 2011 – January 25, 2012, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Location: Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)

"Of Power and Profit: American Seamen in Asian Waters" is an exhibit of prints made from photographs by a nineteenth century American naval officer, Asa Mattice. In the 1880s, he was assigned to the USS Juniata, which undertook a three-year survey expedition, calling at ports from Suez to Sapporo. The photographs in this exhibit are the voyages relics of encounter.

As the nineteenth century moved into the era of high colonialism, ships journeyed forth from the metropoles on voyages of power and profit. The USS Juniata rode the wave of America's post-Civil War international expansion. Unlike the whaler or slaver privateers of earlier generations, now the fleets served national agendas. The US "opening of Japan" at mid-century signaled a new conception of America's relation to Asia.

With missions from the ice fields to the tropics, the Juniata was a part of the US effort to explore, engage, and extract. On board the USS Juniata was military engineer turned naval instructor Asa Mattice. He turned his camera on the sights around him, capturing images of Asia in the last century, and capturing too the sensibilities of his place and time. The photographs from the voyage shown in this exhibit include photographs of Korea, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia. The categories of these visions — the "views," the "everyday life," the "coolie," — consolidated all through the generations of occidental gaze. The shadows captured on these plates, rescued from oblivion by photographer John Dowling, document a moment in America's trajectory toward being a contender in the Pacific.

Okinawa, Japan's southernmost islands, means different things to different parties. For many Japanese, Okinawa symbolizes a tropical paradise with blue oceans and white beaches. For the Japanese state, it provides the ideal site to host Asia's largest American military bases. For the American government, it is a strategic cornerstone for protecting its regional interests. For the Okinawans who have lived there for generations, however, it is home — the home where their heart belongs no matter what happens to it, no matter where they live, and no matter how long they are away. The tragic turns of events brought to the islanders the Ground Battle in 1945, the American military occupation until 1972, and the poorest prefecture throughout the post-WWII era sharply divided by the foreign military presence. How do Okinawans live them in their everyday life? This panel presentation combines academic papers with videographies to deliver voices of ordinary Okinawans living inside and outside of Okinawa.

Japan's IT strategy has seen a repetitive cycle of successes and failures every five years. Between 1990 and 1995, Japan already established Internet access for universities and research centers, which began the foundational structure towards an information society. However, despite this advancement in information technology and the rapid increase of individual Internet users through the launching of Windows 95, IT implementation on the industry and administrative organization levels fell gravely behind by the year 2000.

To break through the slump, the IT Strategic Headquarters was established within the Cabinet Office, and the government and the private sector collaborated to promote the e-Japan Strategy. As a result, by 2005 Japan boasted the world's leading broadband network and even leaped into the implementation of e-commerce and trading.

With these IT infrastructures in place, it was expected for information technology to quickly follow and spread through all aspects of society. However, due to the conservative nature of the medical, educational and administrative organizations, Japan was unable to keep up with continuing changes, finding itself falling behind again over the subsequent five years.

In this lecture, Murai will examine these successes and failures of Japan's IT strategy, and discuss what new plans and goals to set based on these past experiences and lessons.

Disaster, Relief and Volunteering for Civil Society in Post-3.11 Japan
Speaker: David H. Slater, Associate Professor, Cultural Anthropology and Japanese Studies, Sophia University
Date: March 6, 2012, 4-6 p.m.
Location: Institute of East Asian Studies Conference Room (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)
Sponsor: Center for Japanese Studies

In the face of the triple tragedies that befell Japan on March 11th, 2011, one story that is still developing is that of volunteer activity. Thousands of citizens have become mobilized in ways that were almost unimaginable before, from digging toxic mud in Tohoku to staging anti-nuke protests in Tokyo, the largest in Honshu since the 1970's ANPO demonstrations. This talk lays out the different stages of disaster and relief, the ways in which information, people and goods have circulated throughout Japan, and the different types of volunteering that have made such a difference. While this situation is always changing, Slater will also lay out some of the possible options for volunteer work in the coming months.

Migration and Competitiveness: Japan and the United States
Date: March 22, 2012 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Location: Institute of East Asian Studies Conference Room (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)
Sponsors: Center for Japanese Studies (CJS), Center for Global Partnership, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Philip Martin, Professor and Chair, UC Comparative Immigration & Integration Program, UC Davis

This workshop explores the effects of immigrants on particular economic sectors. Each presentation has five sections: an industry profile, migrant employment patterns, the effects of migrants, links between migration, labor and other policies, and alternative options and scenarios.

The industry profile explains the current structure of output and employment, including the use of subcontractors and migrant workers by geography, occupation, size of employer and other factors. Migrant employment explains the current role of migrants, the evolution of migrant employment, how migrant employment patterns are changing. The effects of migrants focus the 3 R's of labor markets, viz, how migrants affect recruitment, remuneration or pay, and retention. Policies deals with the interaction of migration and labor policies and how these policies affect labor markets in the short-, medium-, and long-terms. Options and scenarios examine current policy debates and their consequences for the industry, local and migrant workers, and consumers and society, including the integration of migrants and their families.

Healing Texts, Healing Practices, Healing Bodies: A Workshop on Medicine and Buddhism
Date: April 6, 2012, 2:30-5 p.m.
Location: 370 Dwinelle Hall
Sponsors: Center for Japanese Studies, Center for Buddhist Studies

The prevention, alleviation and cure of physical and mental ills have been central concerns of Buddhist traditions across Asia, as well as a major drive in the creation and promotion of healing rituals and therapies. At the same time, monks have played a key role in the spread and circulation of medical knowledge beyond national borders, and Buddhist institutions have provided fertile ground for the development and consolidation of medical treatises and curative techniques.

The workshop Healing Texts, Healing Practices, Healing Bodies aims to be a platform for scholars working in different fields of Buddhist studies to explore the intersections of Buddhism and medical knowledge in comparative perspective. The papers will analyze different therapeutic strategies emerging from textual sources and ritual practices; discuss how discourses on physical and mental illness have been constructed, represented and embodied; and examine how conceptions of pollution and filth have informed notions of disease as well as their treatment.

*This is a 2-day workshop
Day 1: Friday, April 6th | 2:30pm-5:00pm
Day 2: Saturday, April 7th | 10:00am — 5:00pm

Making Cold War Homes: The Politics of Domesticity in the US Military Occupation of Okinawa
Speaker: Mire Koikari, Associate Professor, Women's Studies, University of Hawaii at Manoa
Date: April 12, 2012, 4-6 p.m.
Location: 554 Barrows Hall
Sponsor: Center for Japanese Studies

This presentation focuses on domestic reformism in US-occupied Okinawa where science-technical education, foreign aid, and military expansionism converged to turn Okinawan home into a crucial site of cold war politics in the 1950s and 1960s.

Initiated by American occupiers and pursued by home economists of Michigan State University, the University of Hawai'i, and the East-West Center, postwar domestic reform disseminated a series of discourses and practices concerning "modern" and "rational" home and homemaking, generating enthusiasm and excitement among Okinawan women amidst violent militarization of the island. As American women collaborated with home economists in mainland Japan and other regions in Asia and the Pacific, they created a transnational network of domestic experts whose movements crossed numerous borders and boundaries.

Drawing on the notion of domesticity as the "engine" of nation and empire building and utilizing archival materials available in Okinawa, Michigan, Hawai'i and Washington DC, the presentation illuminates how domesticity and militarism became intertwined with each other in Cold War Okinawa.

Towards Long-term Sustainability: In Response to the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster
Date: April 20 – 21, 2012 every day
Location: Institute of East Asian Studies Conference Room (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)
Sponsor: Center for Japanese Studies (CJS)

This symposium addresses questions that Japan is facing after the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011, and the Fukushima nuclear accident. The first day of the symposium features three speakers, all of whom have been actively involved in analyzing the Fukushima nuclear plant accident, its historical context, and/or the sociopolitical actions taken by various stakeholders. The second day of the symposium expands the discussion to situate the causes and consequences of the earthquake disaster and Fukushima accident in the context of a long-term sustainable future. Not only did the disaster affect the earthquake and tsunami victims, but it also severely damaged distribution networks and made residents of the rest of Japan realize the vulnerability of our society. The breadth of the problems in contemporary Japan makes it clear that future sustainability is at risk beyond the islands.

"Food Production in Korea: Its Socioeconomic and Symbolic Meaning"
The mysteries of Northeast Asia's prehistoric migration, exchange, and development are explored through an examination of when and how the first domesticated plants and animals were introduced to Korean peninsula. The adoption of first domesticates, such as rice and swine, was not only an economic breakthrough, but resonated across the realms of the social, political, and symbolic life of the community.

Panelist/Speaker: Junko Habu, University of California, Berkeley
"Jomon Food Diversity and Long-term Sustainability: Lessons from Prehistoric Japan"
This presentation focuses on the mechanisms of settlement growth and decline in complex hunter-gatherer societies of prehistoric Japan. Early and Middle Jomon (ca. 6000=4000 years ago) archaeological data from northern Japan indicate that the loss of food diversity and an expansion of the scale of society may have negatively affected long-term sustainability of prehistoric hunter-gatherer societies. Through an examination of this case study, it is argued that archaeology is critical in our understanding of long-term human-environmental interactions.

Panelist/Speaker: Lisa Janz, University of Arizona
"Dune-Dwellers: Post-Glacial Hunter-Gatherers and Early Herders in Mongolia"
New analysis of old archaeological collections from the Gobi Desert indicate that following the last Ice Age, between about 8000 to 3000 years ago, hunter-gatherers began to intensively occupy and exploit dune-field/wetland environments across the arid steppes and deserts of Northeast Asia. This oasis adaptation overlaps with the Early Bronze Age and the rise of nomadic pastoralism in Mongolia. Several intriguing clues suggest that dune-dwelling hunter-gatherers may also have been the first herders, raising questions about their relationship with neighbouring agriculturalist and pastoralist groups.

Panelist/Speaker: Seungki Kwak, University of Washington
"Tracing prehistoric subsistence: Application of Organic Geochemistry Analyses on Potsherds from Ancient Korean Peninsula"
This study attempts to understand prehistoric human subsistence in Korean peninsula using organic geochemistry analyses on potsherds. Organic geochemistry Analyses has contributed to archaeology in various cases including ceramic studies since its initial application. While other approaches are focusing on reconstructing the ancient pot function such as use-wear analysis and ethnographic studies, organic geochemistry analyses on archaeological ceramics endeavor to be precise about types of food groups that was cooked or stored within a pot by attempting to isolate and identify the specific organic compounds trapped in the fabric of its wall. Since organic compounds are often preserved in direct association with archaeological ceramics, organic geochemistry analyses have become an important method of investigation which archaeologists use to better understand the function of ceramic artifacts and local diets. If we conduct these analyses on the pottery from different locations, we will be able to understand past subsistence behaviors even in the absence of faunal or floral remains. The direct examination of the remains of resources in the Korean peninsula is limited to shell middens, because the high acidity of sediment does not allow long-term preservation of bone or plant remains. Therefore, organic geochemistry analyses could be the most suitable method in this setting. This research will provide a unique chance to understand ancient subsistence through the direct examination of potteries: the most wide-spread material culture in the prehistoric Korea.

Cultural Geographies of 1960s Japan: Cinema, Music + Arts
Date: April 26 – 27, 2012 every day
Location: Institute of East Asian Studies Conference Room (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)
Sponsors: Center for Japanese Studies, Townsend Center for the Humanities, Department of Music, Arts Research Center, Film Studies, Department of History of Art

This workshop proposes to take the concerns of cultural geography as a model (or metaphor) for a way of thinking the landscape of art- and film-making in the 1960s Tokyo counterculture. By mapping the circulation of different forms of cinema, music, media and performance arts, the location of the different institutions that housed them, and the network of relations between the people involved, the workshop will enhance our understanding of intermediality in 1960s arts as a social and spatial, as well as textual, practice. The 1960s "counter-culture" must be taken at its word: as a relational term opposed to the commercial culture of high economic growth that also formed its condition of possibility. Combining the hermeneutic analysis of texts and art works with the recent emphasis on inter-medial connections and the analysis of spatial culture, the workshop aims to create a new perspective on the relation of avant-garde and mainstream culture.

In the Shadow of Hiroshima: Childrens' Visions of Life
Multimedia Exhibit
Location: Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)
Dates: June 12–September 12, 2012, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Sponsors: Institute of East Asian Studies, Center for Japanese Studies

"In the Shadow of Hiroshima: Childrens' Visions of Life" is an exhibit that evokes war, horror, and devastation — with hardly a trace of any of these depicted in the works themselves.

"Hiroshima" is a city whose name is inextricably linked with the moment in August 1945 when it became the victim of the first atomic bomb attack. While the images of its destruction are widely known, less familiar is the tale of its survival and resilience.

Drawn within a couple of years of the bombing by children in Hiroshima, aged 7 to 12, the colorful pictures in this exhibition depict merriment and good cheer: schoolyard games, excursions into beautiful countrysides, flowers, city streets devoid of desolation. Only two children chose to depict the iconic dome at ground zero that caps the skeletal remains of the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall, the dome has become known world-wide as the symbol of Hiroshima and the atomic bombing. In the picture at right, the dome crowds the extreme left of the composition, just barely included and jostling with the other structural elements of the bustling city along the dominant blue swath of the river. In the picture at left, done by a boy then only recently arrived in the city from the U.S., the dome is the full focus of the composition. For the rest, the young artists chose to depict the things that matter to them: a dress, a doll, a car, a cap — things that might catch the interest of a child anywhere.

The pictures were sent to All Souls Church, Unitarian, in Washington, D.C. in the late 1940s by one of the two surviving schools in Hiroshima as a thank-you gift for aid they had received. A selection of fifteen of the pictures, and three picture facsimiles for originals too fragile to travel, comprise this exhibit. The entire collection held by All Souls Church can be viewed at

In 2010, the pictures returned to Hiroshima for the first time, as part of a project seeking out those who had made them over sixty years before. The survivors were invited to attend an exhibit and ceremony at the annual August 6 atomic bombing anniversary observance in Hiroshima. A representative of All Souls Church has provided an account of the visit on one of the information panels. A documentary filmmaker covered the event and interviewed the survivors about their pictures, their lives, and their experiences as children growing up in Hiroshima. The film, "Pictures from a Hiroshima Schoolyard," will be screened on August 10 (see Public Programs, below).

Layers of uncertainty cloud our understanding of these pictures. The pictures were later given titles; these are not included here as they were not titles given to the works by the children themselves. Even the names of the children, written in English on each picture not by the children but by other hands, may be erroneously translated. For some of the artists, we have, thanks to the filmed interviews, the words of the adults they have now become as they look back over the decades at the children they once were, and sift through their memories of that time and place. For others, who could not be located or who have passed away, we can know little of their thoughts or intentions. Rather than pursuit of definitive answers, what this exhibit inspires is the quest for greater understanding of the larger picture of twentieth-century history, the dark context of the devastated city, and the confrontation with the realities of atomic power that have haunted society since that fateful day in August 1945.

The Institute of East Asian Studies gratefully acknowledges All Souls Church, Unitarian, in Washington D.C. for the generous loan of these pictures.
