Embracing Tradition, Memories, and Reconciliation for Intercultural and Cross-Generational Empowerment and Transformation
Miki Arakaki, Sanae Eda, Kristen Mullins, Hideko Russell, and Linda White
This project involves the translation, analysis, and archiving of historical records of Tenryumura, a mountain village in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. Tenryumura is a community whose history includes a complex and acknowledged role in wartime Japan; and a desire to understand and keep this history, and its lessons, known. The scope and goals of the project are being developed in collaboration with, and at the request of, leaders of Tenryumura. The webinar will include discussion about how this project and the relationships that make it possible, have developed over the past years, and the potentially broad implications of this work.
