Register for a free evening workshop with Professor Brian Dowdle at the University of Montana!
This is a free evening workshop on modern Japanese history and culture for middle and high school teachers and librarians, offered at the University of Montana, Missoula.

Lectures will detail the end of the samurai, the shifting urban/rural divide, and related cultural developments within the context of war and peace. The workshop will also introduce teaching ideas and activities to help students explore historical connections between Japan and Montana including mining, development, and agriculture.
