  International Workshop
 3-5 November 2011

Download programme : Programme-SHR-ENG

The Bibliothèque nationale de France, the Japanese studies Center (Inalco) and the Research Center on East Asian Civilization in Paris organize together an International Workshop about the Illustrated Scroll of the Sake and the Rice debate (Shuhanron emaki), on the 3-5 November 2011.

This workshop was created in the scope of the Research program entitled “Japanese manuscripts and narrative paintings of the Edo Period owned by the Manuscripts Department or the public collections inFrance”. This program is a part of the Research triennial program of the Library for 2010-2012.

This Workshop aims to present the results of these two year of collective research, centered on the Shuhanron emaki and the question of the text (3-4 November) and the images (5 November).

The original manuscript of the Shuhanron emaki dates back to the 16th century, and the huge amount of extant copies from late Muromachi toEdo periods suggests this work to have been quite popular. During this workshop, specialists of Literature and History of Art will examine the multiples significations of those representations.
