7th Tekijuku Lectures -- Unknown History of Diplomacy in the Edo Period -- Tekijuku nurtured through exchange with the world

2014-9-27 (Sat) - 2014-10-11 (Sat)

As part of a project to honor the achievement of Tekijuku, the Tekijuku Memorial Association has held Tekijuku Workshops since 2008 in order to discuss historical roles played by Tekijuku and its spirit. In this year's Tekijuku Lectures, competent historians will talk about the relationship beween Japan and the world, the relationship being looked at anew from viewpoints of the Asian world, the Pacific world, and the European world, in order to shed light on diplomacy in the Edo Period hidden behind the phrase of "national isolation".
