CWJC 2017 Summer Lecture Series „Justice for Comfort Women“ (Steve K.)

Please join us for the CWJC 2017 Summer Lecture Series „Justice for Comfort Women“ on July 7th (at SFSU) and July 19th (at Cathay House Restaurant, SF). 

We are delighted to sponsor two lectures by Prof Peipei Qiu (co-sponsored by SFSU Asian American Studies Department) and Prof Su Zhiliang (co-sponsored by Global Alliances), the esteemed authors of the critically acclaimed bookChinese Comfort Women: Testimonies from Imperial Japan’s Sex Slaves (Oxford University Press, 2014). The book has been named Best Book of the Year by the Chinese American Librarians Association and received numerous raving reviews. Publishers Weekly, for example, stated that „This vital work, combining exemplary scholarship and humanitarian activism, should prove valuable to a wide audience and indispensable to specialists.“

Professor Qiu’s topic is „Comfort Women“-Imperial Japan’s Sex Slaves During the Asian Pacific War.  Profesor Su’s topic is Road to UNESCO Recognition of Nanjing Massacre and the „Comfort Women“ in the Memory of World Register.  

This is a rare opportunity that allows us to learn directly from those scholars on their decades of scholarship that has significantly expanded and revised our understanding of the so-called Japanese Military „Comfort Women“ system.
