Japanese War Propaganda, 1931-1945

Between 1931 and 1945, the Japanese government, military authorities and many non-governmental agencies created a wide range of provocative paintings, cartoons, posters, pamphlets, photos and films to justify Japan’s continuous military operations in China, and later in South East Asia and the Pacific. The purpose was to shape citizens into active supporters of the state’s goals and ambitions. The wartime propaganda pushed the nation to mobilize to an extent that by some measures, surpassed even other fascist regimes.

The Historian-in-residence, Mr. Ko Tim-keung curates a series of historical images of Japanese war propaganda from 1931 to 1945 in The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Courtyard and Interpretation Centre. In the talk section, he will walk through the origin of Japanese wartime propaganda and how it was conducted and implemented throughout this turbulent period.

The talk will be in Cantonese.

About the speaker:

Mr. Ko Tim-keung, Historian-in-residence, was formerly council member of Royal Asiatic Society (Hong Kong Branch), member of Antiquities Advisory Board, and museum expert adviser for the Leisure and Culture Services Department. Presently, he serves as member of Collection Committee, Hong Kong Maritime Museum. He has written extensively on various aspects of Hong Kong history.
