Visiting professor lectures on role of mass print media in Japan’s history

The Meiji Restoration generated not only an industrial boom in late 19th century Japan but also a new wave of mass-produced media.
Bard College assistant professor Nathan Shockey will speak about this surge of magazine printing in his colloquium at Royce Hall on Friday, titled “Developing A Paper Empire: Late Meiji Magazines And Modern Japanese Mass Culture.” The lecture, hosted by the Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies, will explore the role of photography and oral performance in making typographic print a widespread, mass phenomenon.
