Since 2004, one workshop has been held annually at each of the National Folk Museum of South Korea and Rekihaku; during each, we have discussed the history and culture of Japan and South Korea and achieved certain results.

Schedule February 15–16, 2007
Concept

This research workshop will compare and analyze cases of memory expression (i.e., narrative, document, and monument) involving war experiences in Japan, the U.S., and in certain European countries, as well as specific acts of "handing down" these memories to the next generation. Through these efforts, we will analyze the characteristics of those societies, in terms of how they memorize and represent their respective war experiences.
