About the Event 

This talk is an introduction to the vibrant social and cultural life of early nineteenth century Japan, told through the story of an irrepressible woman named Tsuneno, who defied convention to make a life for herself in the big city of Edo (now Tokyo) in the decades before the arrival of Commodore Perry and the fall of the shogunate.
