Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


 

Jan 8, 2012

This episode Travis talks about a conference he attended in October 2011 titled "Utopias and the Japanese Imaginary". Travis presented his paper on Hokusai's "Eight Views of Okinawa", a collection of eight woodblock prints done by Hokusai, who had never actually been to Okinawa. He discusses why Hokusai chose to do a collection of prints on Okinawa, despite never having been there, what resources he used, and why.
