About the Speaker:
Edward Fowler teaches courses on modern Japanese literature, film, and society at the University of California, Irvine. He is currently Visiting Professor at International Christian University.
The purpose of this illustrated talk is to consider the question in the context of modern and early-modern history, both in view of recent scholarship and in light of evidence culled from old-fashioned foot-pounding in Tokyo and surrounding areas. The talk, which focuses on two neighborhoods, highlights mobility within the city — i.e. the way in which institutions and whole populations have moved or have been moved, often repeatedly, over the years — while underscoring what Suzuki Hiroyuki (in another context) refers to as the persistent genius loci of certain locales.
