Event: Citadel Symposium on American Leaders and Leadership in World War I
Date: Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3, 2018.
Event: Public Lecture
Speaker: Dr. Ling Chen
Lecture Title: "The Sacred Island of Okinoshima's Struggle for Placement on UNESCO's World Heritage List"
Details: Dr. Ling Chen is giving a public lecture on The Sacred Island of Okishama and the struggle to place the island on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The island is considered a kami (diety or spirit) that guards Japan from foreign intruders or malevolent seaborne forces. Inhabited only by one Shinto priest, women are prohibited from access to the island which makes this an interesting presentation given Ling Chen is a woman! Just last year the island gained UNESCO status and Professor Chen's talk will shed light on Shinto beliefs, the archaelogy and history of the island, and the political agendas and conflicts revealed during the process to obtain historic UNESCO status.
