SAALER Sven

Professor
Japanese History

On sabbatical leave during autumn 2021 and spring 2022

M.A., Ph.D., University of Bonn

Research and Teaching Interests:

I have published extensively on issues of historical memory in Japan; the transnational ideology of Pan-Asianism and facets of regionalism in modern East Asia; as well as on Japanese-German relations. My 2005 book Politics, Memory and Public Opinion and a number of articles dealt with the Japanese history textbook controversy, the Yasukuni Shrine issue and historical consciousness in Japan. Pan-Asianism in Modern Japanese History (2007) was the first book-length publication in English on historical issues of East Asian regionalism; Pan-Asianism. A Documentary History (2011) is a two-volume primary source collection tracing regionalism in East Asian history. I have published in English, German and Japanese, and some of my research has been translated into French, Chinese, Korean and Armenian.
