This conference is innovative in that it expands the historic event into the nuclear issues of the contemporary era, taking the approach that history speaks to the present. It contemplates what Japan’s historic lessons can offer to the world, focusing on the debates over war, nuclear energy issues, and peace constitution. Its cope is broad, covering the area from popular culture and Hibakusha literature to energy issues.
