Since World War II, modern discourses of educational reform in Japan continue to shift within changing social and historical trajectories. These shifts have not been unproblemative as notions of “democracy” at the end of the war through the production of Japanization in contemporary society have been contested. Dr. Qi will examine how various historical discourses conceptualized different notions of what it meant to be a “good” follower, citizen and worker, which is socially constructed and historically contingent.
Presented by visitor Jie Qi, Professor of Education, Utsunomiya University, Japan
