Japan Breaking Boundaries

Second Annual Graduate Student Symposium for Japanese Studies, April 22, 1995.

Today's generation of graduate students is breaking boundaries within the field of Japanese studies and across disciplines. It is in this spirit that we would like to contest the limitations, explore the margins and resist the confines of traditional concepts of Japanese culture, history and politics. What is to be gained by rethinking boundaries? How can we analyze, reinterpret, or displace current notions of cultural, national and intellectual boundaries?
