Meiji Japan’s “Westernization” culminated in a titanic war against Tsarist Russia that stunned the world and established Japan as a major imperialist power with a firm foothold on the Asian mainland. This unit draws on photographs and rare war prints from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

This unit was funded in part by The National Endowment for the Humanities, The d'Arbeloff Excellence in Education Fund, The Center for Global Partnership, The Andrew Mellon Foundation, and MIT iCampus Outreach.
