This panel seeks to examine the manner in which Westerners depicted the Japanese during times of crisis. These depictions can be nation specific (for example,American representations) or refer to the West in general. Papers showing the inverse (Japanese depictions of the West during these same crises) are also welcome. Papers may examine all mediums of depiction including (but not limited to) film,literature, cartoons, music and theater. Papers referring to the period of the Yellow Peril and the Russo-Japanese War(1905-6) are of particular interest, but all times of crisis will be considered.
Please submit all paper proposals through the ACLA seminar site listed above.
