Online Book Launch: Ishikawa Sanshirō’s Geographical Imagination by Dr Nadine Willems

Mon 26 October 2020, 12:00-13:00 BST

Book here on the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation website.

Ishikawa Sanshirō was a journalist and anarchist in the early twentieth century, active at a time of tremendous intellectual and social ferment. Geographical Imagination investigates his engagement with causes such as farmers’ autonomy, gender equality, and anti-war and anti-pollution. Through Ishikawa’s personal journey – which includes several years of European exile – the book invites us to reconsider the scope and ambitions of anarchism in Japan at the time and reassesses geographical thought as a basis for dialogue between Eastern and Western radical thinkers.

In this book launch, the author, CJS colleague Dr Nadine Willems, will be joined in discussion of the book’s themes by Dr Constance Bantman and Dr Ian Rapley. It will be hosted as an online webinar.
