The Committee on Japanese Materials Meeting

(Thursday, March 22, 2018 3:15-4:15 PM)

“Occupation Period-Related Materials: Issues of Digitization, Access and Opportunities for Digital Scholarship”

The University of Maryland is the home to the Prange Collection, the most comprehensive archive in the world of Japanese print publications issued during the early years of the Occupation of Japan, 1945-1949. With that in mind, we organized this year’s Committee on Japanese Materials session on the theme of Allied Occupation period-related materials, focusing on issues of digitization, access, and opportunities for digital scholarship. Please see below the details of the session.
