Dr. Kodet lectured at the Japanese Embassy in Prague on November 22. His lecture, "The Meiji Restoration and the Birth of Modern Japan," introduced the Meiji Restoration from a broader global historical perspective and challenged the traditional narrative of the struggle of the reforming domains against the archaic Tokugawa regime. Before the lecture, dr. Kodet discussed future cooperation with the staff of the Japanese Embassy and was greeted by His Excellency Japanese ambassador himself.
