This international symposium explores Japan’s role in the First Global Age through a comprehensive and interdisciplinary investigation of its cultural and intellectual production from about 1500 to 1700. Convening at Kyushu University, researchers from top-institutions around the world and from a wide disciplinary range, will bridge the classical humanities (history, art history, literature, religious studies, intellectual history) and history of science (astronomy, cartography, military technology).
This symposium is co-organized and co-funded by Kyushu University’s Faculty of Humanities and Yale University’s Council of East Asian Studies.
