Commemorating Nagai Kafu’s study at K

When the fledgling Japanese novelist Nagai Kafu arrived in Kalamazoo in 1904, the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905) was raging. In this talk, literary and cultural historian Jeffrey Angles will share a series of new discoveries about Kafu’s time in Kalamazoo and will use them as a window to peer into a little known but extremely dynamic moment of Japanese-American cultural exchange in the early twentieth century.
