Make yourself a signature Columbia cocktail or mocktail and enjoy an engaging talk from Alice Tseng CC’96. Alice will investigate the examples of woodblock print designs that feature the emperor and members of his family. Found in the collections of major art and university museums today, these prints continue to dictate our perception of the Japanese monarchy and dominant social-cultural values. This talk will be followed by Q&A with Alice and breakout sessions to connect with your fellow alumni. This event has been brought to you by the Columbia College Alumni Association in partnership Columbia College Women, Columbia College Young Alumni and the Asian Columbia Alumni Association. About Alice: Alice Y. Tseng is the department chair of History of Art and Architecture and professor of Japanese art and architecture at Boston University. Her research focuses on Japan from the nineteenth century to the present, especially the history of cities, buildings, and the visual arts in response to exchanges with Europe and the United States. Tseng is the author of numerous publications including The Imperial Museums of Meiji Japan: Architecture and the Art of the Nation (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2008), Kyoto Visual Culture in the Early Edo and Meiji Periods: The Arts of Reinvention, coedited with M. Pitelka (Abingdon, UK: Routledge, 2016), and Modern Kyoto: Building for Ceremony and Commemoration, 1868–1940 (Honolulu: University of Hawai‘i Press, 2018).
