As 2020 Marks the 75th Anniversary of WWII, come to Portland St. for a talk by Dr. Carol Gluck of Columbia for her lecture titled "POSTWAR JAPAN: A PRE-POSTMORTUM."

Description of the lecture:

This year Japan is commemorating “75 years of the postwar.” How is it that Japanese still believe that they are living in the postwar, three quarters of a century after the end of World War II?  What are the multiple meanings of “postwar,” how have they changed, and when will Japan’s “long postwar” finally, if ever, come to an end?
