Okinawan Art in its Regional Context new

Okinawan Art in its Regional Context   JPsupported

This two-day conference will address the socio-cultural complexities of Okinawan identity over the course of history, and explore the intersection between art, politics, and identity from an interdisciplinary perspective. The object of the conference and its ensuing studies is to shed light on how Okinawan arts and cultures have been shaped by internal political situations and by a triple subjugation to the United States, Japan, and China.

In this conference, we will bring together a unique selection of scholars in art history, history, politics, sociology, and visual arts, primarily to identify historical and political processes behind art and cultural forms.
