Save the date - Osamu James Nakagawa is coming to DePaul Nov 4th

Save the date - Nov 4, 2015 renowned Japanese photographer Osamu James Nakagawa will be speaking at the DePaul University Art Museum about the development of his work and experiences on the island of Okinawa, Japan.

Okinawa Stories - 70 Arduous Years in the Pacific

Osamu James Nakagawa

DePaul University Art Museum
935 W. Fullerton 2nd floor
Chicago, IL 60614

Spurred on by the news that Japanese high school history textbooks would exclude the Japanese army's involvement in the atrocities of the Battle of Okinawa, Nakagawa embarked on a journey into the caves of the island to photograph an untold and obscured history through significant historical sites.

This event is free and open to the public.

Organized in conjunction with my DePaul Okinawa, Japan study abroad course "Okinawa, Art, Politics and Economy," this event is sponsored by the Center for Intercultural Programs and co-sponsored by Global Asian Studies and Japanese Studies.
