To celebrate the 150th anniversary of railroads in Japan, this lecture explores how woodblock print showing trains reveal diverse aspects of Japan's modernity and different attitudes towards it. Themes include the promise and problems of technology, cultural shifts, and how artistic imagination is spurred by material change. The lecture will conclude with a virtual gallery tour by curator, Dr. Kendall Brown.
