Lecture: "Competent People who Studied in Naniwa -- focusing on Tekijuku Students"

Lecturer: FUKUDA Maiko, Specially Appointed Researcher, Tekijuku Commemoration Center, Osaka University
Quite a few scholars of Western learning in Osaka were among those who were active at the end of the Edo Period. Especially in the latter half of the 19th century, Western countries advanced to East Asia and the necessity for diplomacy and national defense increased interest in Western learning. The national government and local governments needed scholars of Western learning, persons familiar with Western languages, science and technology. This lecture will focus on the role played by these scholars of Western and their roles in the modernization of Japan, citing examples of students from OGATA Koan's private school Tekijuku.
