Presentation Title: The Development of Japanese Educational Culture in Brazil as a Node for Interconnected Histories

Abstract: Before the Pacific War, Japanese Brazilian society assumed dual characteristics: one as an outpost of the Japanese Empire and the other as an integral part of nation-state Brazil. Relecting on this duality, education for the children of Japanese immigrants evolved under the influence of the Japanese educational practices and the Brazilian public education system. This lecture begins by reviewing elementary school education for Japanese Brazilian children that reached its golden age in the late 1930s, introducing the Japanese educational practices popular at that time. In particular, the discussion illustrates how the Japanese pedagogical practices, including sports, support for troops, and school exercusion, were promoted when the Brazilian government was pursuing the nationalization policy. Situating the Japanese educational culture within the interconnected modernization movements of the two countries, the lecture will invite the audience to explore the historical significance of the Japanese educational culture and its important implications for today.

Date & Time: Saturday, October 31, 2-4pm (JST); Friday, October 30, 9-11pm (PST)

Venue: Zoom (Online meeting)
