How does war shape societies beyond the boundaries of the battlefield? How do societies react, heal, and absorb the drama of conflict and its preparation? Is there a universal way to look at the tragedy of war? What are the expressions of war in the contemporary world?
This concert seeks to engage with these questions by exploring how war has contributed to shape contemporary Japan, a country where the relationship between war and peace has contributed to define its emergence as a modern state, and continue to play a role in its evolution as a mature democracy.
This event co hosted by the Kings Japan Programme and the Arts & Conflict Hub in the Department of War Studies, will be taking place in the beautiful surroundings of the College Chapel.
