Lecture – Samurai: Men Of War In An Age Of Peace By David Howell
Tuesday, March 31
6:30 p.m.
The samurai’s place in the complex structure of state and society, and their interaction with other classes will be presented by David Howell, Ph.D. of Harvard University. In his survey of samurai history, Howell will also look at moments like a peasant’s exhortation to his descendants that they never aspire to become samurai and the Ako vendetta, which served for three hundred years as an iconic statement of samurai values. This lecture is cosponsored by Rice University’s Glasscock School of Continuing Studies. Peace By David Howell
