Japanese Imperial Maps as Sources for East Asian History: A Symposium on the History and Future of the Gaihozu

Please join us for a talk by Professor Kobayashi Shigeru!

Stanford University owns a large but uncatalogued set of Japanese colonial surveys (gaihōzu), mostly from the 1930s and 40s, including detailed topographical maps of the entire empire as well as thematic maps for Manchuria. While similar materials also exist in other collections (the Library of Congress, as well as more than a dozen other institutions in the US, Taiwan, & Japan), these maps have mostly lain outside of the purview of colonial historians until now. This symposium will examine the utility of these colonial maps as tools for historical research. Our presenters represent a diverse, international group of scholars who are interested in reconstructing past landscapes—whether urban or rural—and analyzing colonial development priorities and practices by using cartographic documents as a resource.

When:
Friday, October 7, 2011. 05:00 PM.
Approximate duration of 1.5 hour(s).
Where:
Building 200 - Room 307, History Corner, Main Quad (Map)
Admission:
Free and open to the public. RSVP requested by October 5 to Sayoko Sakakibara at sakakibara@stanford.edu. Please include name, affiliation
and field of study.
