LAPA Seminar with Yukiko Koga - Post-Imperial Reckoning: Law, Redress, Reconciliation
Department:Program in Law and Public Affairs
Audience:Open to the Public
LAPA’s seminar format encourages attendees to familiarize themselves with the paper in advance. A commentator opens the session by summarizing the main themes in the paper and presenting some topics for discussion.
Copies of the seminar paper are typically available about 10 days before the event, during regular business hours, at the LAPA Offices on the 3rd floor of Wallace Hall.
Yukiko Koga specializes in the areas of political economy, legal anthropology, history and memory, post-colonial and post-imperial relations, and transnational East Asia (China and Japan). She is the author of the award winning, Inheritance of Loss: China, Japan, and the Political Economy of Redemption after Empire (University of Chicago Press, 2016), which explores how the introduction of the market-oriented economy in China created new dynamics concerning the contested yet under-explored past for both Chinese and Japanese. At LAPA, she is working on her book-in-progress, entitled Post-imperial Reckoning: Transnational Legal Redress in East Asia, an ethnographic, historical, and legal exploration of a series of collective lawsuits filed by Chinese victims of Japanese imperial violence against the Japanese government and corporations.
