Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


Follow your hosts on a trek into Japanese history, from ancient Japan to the end of the Samurai and all points in between - culture, warfare, literature, and interviews. Simply stated, our mission is to bridge the gap between the popular and the academic, and to bring the world of academic Japanese history accessible to a wider audience through discussion of topics and authors in an informative but informal manner. We encourage those listeners who want to know more to seek out works by the historians and authors we reference and interview, and to contribute to the conversation. Conversely, we hope scholars can view us as a way to reach a broader, non-specialist audience and raise the bar for general understandings of Japanese history.

For the first podcast in our conference series, your hosts Nate and Chris come to you live from the AAS/ICAS (The Association for Asian Studies and the International Convention of Asia Scholars) Conference held in Honolulu, Hawaii, from March 31st to April 3rd, 2011. You'll hear reactions and comments on the first few seminars of the first day, including lectures covering Japan's current security issues, religion and manga, and Zen Buddhism and the Muromachi Shogunate. Recorded on site at a table at the conference, sound quality is pretty much as expected - hopefully the background noise will enhance the overall experience with that "on the ground, in the trenches" feel. Consider it overall a work in progress, and enjoy!
