The Meiji at 150 Project examines Japan’s position in global history and the place of the Meiji Restoration in Japanese history. The site includes a Digital Teaching Resource, lectures, visual essays, and 120 content-rich podcasts, some of which include transcripts. The podcasts highlight the recent research and pedagogical approaches of specialists of Japanese history, literature, art, and culture. The companion Meiji at 150 Student Podcast spotlights students studying Japanese history on the University of British Columbia campus. The site includes links to open-access, external digital collections on Japanese history which may be used for student research projects.
