Please join us as we host a lecture by a prominent scholar in East Asian history, Professor Morgan Pitelka on what daily life was like in a medieval city. In this talk, professor Pitelka will highlight how provincial centers could be dynamic and vibrant nodes of industrial, cultural, economic, and political entrepreneurship and sophistication. In this lecture a new and vital understanding of late medieval society is revealed, one in which Ichij├┤dani played a central role in the vibrant age of Japan's sixteenth century.
