Questionable translatability: the Contested notion of ‘Japaneseness’ in the craft and Craft Design of the Japanese Empire

Kikuchi, Yuko;

Full Article:

This paper discusses the issue of untranslatability through a case study that examines the notion of ‘Japaneseness’ in design in the context of inter-East Asian craft design from 1930s Japan in East Asia. It aims to address the issue of globalisation of an academic discipline and untranslatability, and explores the way forward in thinking about globalisation of design history where translation has been identified as key for connecting and engagement.
