Tsuneno’s Tales: Narrating Domestic and Global History in Eurasia, 1600–1900

Conférence d’Amy Stanley, Professeur à l’Université Northwestern, dans le cadre du séminaire collectif du Centre Japon le 16 novembre 2017.

Microhistory and global history are often seen as opposing approaches to historical inquiry, with irreconcilable research methods, central questions, and strategies of narration. This talk combines both approaches, telling the story of an Edo period Japanese woman both as a microhistory and as a global history. The protagonist, Tsuneno, was a divorced woman from a small village in Echigo Province who ran away to Edo and worked as a maidservant. By placing her story of urban migration and service work in a global context, this talk considers how we might find a place for Japanese women in the history of global early modernity.

Jeudi 16 novembre 2017 de 11h à 13h
EHESS, Salle 11, 105 boulevard Raspail 75006 Paris

Abenomics Revisited

In the wake of Prime Minister Abe Shinzo’s electoral victory in Japan’s General Election on 22 October 2017, the journal Japan Forum has published a Perspectives Essay on ‘Abenomics’ by social scientists Sebastien Lechevalier (EHESS, Paris)  and Brieuc Monfort (Sophia University, Tokyo).

The article can be accessed online at:

Lechevalier and Monfort offer key insights useful to those interested in understanding the economic policies, successes and failures, that lay behind Abe’s Premiership up to this election victory.

The essay argues that both over-optimistic and over-pessimistic predictions have been wrong for the following reasons:

Some predictions were theoretically well-grounded but disconnected from Japan’s economic and political-economic context; others were too closely entwined with Japanese reality and excessively influenced by evaluations of the controversial figure of Abe, failing in this way to sufficiently consider quantitative data or define criteria of objective evaluation.

“Short-termism” is another problem that commonly afflicts discussions of Abenomics: relying on quarterly results in the absence of a broader view, this perspective is reflected in extreme (positive or negative) evaluations.

Perspectives Essays are a regular feature published by Japan Forum, the journal of the British Association for Japanese Studies, hosted by the SOAS Japan Research Centre.
