Dr. John Person’s talk on “The Rightwing in Imperial Japan”

On June 10, Dr. John Person from State University of New York, Albany, gave a talk titled “The Rightwing in Imperial Japan.”

Dr. Person gave a fascinating presentation on right-wing groups, activism, and terrorism in pre-war Japan, focusing on the little-known history of government surveillance and suppression of the right in the 1930’s.

He showed how important it is to be careful with categories such as the “right-wing,” as its meaning depends on the context and has changed overtime.

Thank you very much, Dr. John Person!
