Lecture: Professor Akira Nishimura, Kagoshima University- Pacification of the Dead Spirits, Inspiration for the Living: The Relation of the Violent Structure of Japanese Society to the Commemoration for the War Dead

In this talk, Professor Akira Nishimura will try to recapitulate such genealogies of the commemorations based on the violent structure of Japanese society and abstract two types of vectors as “pacification and inspiration” which represent the relation of the living and the dead.
