2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Asia-Pacific War. This fall, we will welcome Nobuyoshi TAKASHIMA, professor emeritus of the University of Ryukyus, to Vancouver. Professor Takashima, a former high school social studies (geography and history) teacher and textbook author, a teacher educator at the University of Ryukyus, has been leading study tours to Malaysia and Singapore for the last four decades,
At a memorial for the Chinese victims of the Imperial
Japanese Army, August 15, 2014, in Kuala Lumpur,
with Takashima and his study tour members 
researching, documenting and publishing on the history of the region, particularly the massacre by the Imperial Japanese Army of tens of thousands of Chinese residents in the region, during the Japanese Army’s invasion and occupation from December 1941 to August 1945. 

Professor TAKASHIMA has published widely in the areas of history education, textbook issues, war responsibilities and war memory, including those of Okinawa. When he was in graduate school at Tokyo University of Education (now Tsukuba University), he was a student of late Saburo IENAGA, who is internationally known for the “Ienaga Textbook Lawsuits,” the three-decades struggle from 1960s to 90s against the Japanese government’s screening of the textbooks he authored. 

Professor TAKASHIMA also fought a separate textbook lawsuit from 1993 to 2005, over the description of the media control over events such as Emperor Hirohito’s death and the First Gulf War. In Vancouver, Professor TAKASHIMA will talk about his decades of collaboration with people in Malaysia and Singapore in learning and sharing memory of the war, as an example of grass-roots peace and reconciliation building in the Asia-Pacific region. We believe that such event will be significant in multi-cultural Vancouver with many of its residents closely connected to Asia, and we look forward to having cooperation and support from individuals and organizations who agree to the intent of this event. 

Professor TAKASHIMA also has a family connection to Vancouver – his father was the first principal of Steveston Japanese School, established in 1911. This is professor Takashima’s first public lecture tour in North America. 

  Professor Takashima will speak in Japanese and consecutive translation into English will be provided.
