ASHP/CML's The Lost Museum was featured at a presentation at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan.
Josh Brown was a member of the American Studies Association delegation to the June 2002 Japanese Association for American Studies annual conference at Meiji University in Tokyo. He presented a paper, “From the Illustrated Newspaper to Cyberspace: Visual Technologies and Interaction in the 19th and 21st Centuries,” at a conference session devoted to “Technology and Society,” reflecting on ASHP/CML’s digital work over the last ten years and its impact on the design and accessibility of new media history. During his two-week visit Brown also lectured on “The Lost Museum: Reconstructing a 19th-Century Experience in the Digital Age” at a graduate American Studies seminar at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto and at a public event sponsored by the U.S. Embassy at Hokkaido University in Sapporo. He also presented a paper, “Fractured Views: 19th-Century New York City in the Pictorial Press, 1865-1877,” at an American Studies seminar at the University of Tokyo, Komaba campus.
