John Dower, Asia in the Modern World
Recorded on 2/13/12. Part of a two-day conference that consisted of image-driven presentations addressing both Asian and non-Asian representations of 19th and 20th-century developments in the history of East and Southeast Asia. Presented by the Visualizing Cultures project at MIT and the following programs at Princeton University: Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, The East Asian Studies Program, The Council of the Humanities & The Shelby Cullom Davis Center for Historical Studies
Visualizing Cultures was launched at MIT in 2002 to explore the potential of the Web for developing innovative image-driven scholarship and learning. The VC mission is to use new technology and hitherto inaccessible visual materials to reconstruct the past as people of the time visualized the world (or imagined it to be).
