Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series
Friday Feb. 1, 6;15pm-7:30pm, WEST Norman Public Library (300 Norman Center Ct.)
"Medieval Japan: An Age of Faith and War" presented by Joshua Frydman, Assistant Professor of Japanese, Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, University of Oklahoma
Medieval Japan - In 1192, the first Shogunate, or warrior government, rose from the ashes of war to dominate Japan. Over the next 400 years, as the aristocratic culture of classical Japan withered away, vibrant new forms took hold in everything from art and clothing to religion and warfare. Much of “traditional” Japan was in fact born during these centuries--Japan’s own, tumultuous Middle Ages!
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the OU Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no test, just interesting information about life long ago.
