Cette conférence sera donnée par  Yukiko KOGA, Associate Professor à l’Université Yale, Professeure invitée de l’EHESS, dans le cadre du séminaire « Rendez-Vous du Japon contemporain ».

"Post-imperial Reckoning” explores what it means to reckon with imperial violence decades after the Japanese Empire’s demise. Through legal and ethnographic analyses of lawsuits filed by Chinese and Korean survivors of slave labor against the Japanese government and corporations, it examines how the evasion of imperial accountability lies at the core of what I call the “unmaking of empire”—the entwined processes of de-imperialization and de-colonialization, which left certain populations outside the purview of accountability for decades in former perpetrator and victim nations, while enabling former perpetrators to, yet again, acquire unjust gain at the expense of victims’ redressal. I examine how the lawsuits challenge the structures of silencing that left the victims unredressable."
