Samurai Lectures by Turnbull Kenesaw, GA

Quote:
12:30-2:00PM: Behind the Mask:
The Mysterious Samurai
For many people their introduction to the samurai –
Japan's hereditary warrior class – happens when they visit
a museum and see a suit of Japanese armour. It often
looks like a very ornate beetle, and one of the most interesting parts is the face mask with its grinning teeth and
horse-hair moustaches. This item often provokes a common question, ‘Why would anyone want to fight in this?'
In this talk Dr. Turnbull will go ‘behind the mask' to examine the truth about these legendary warriors.

6:30-7:45PM: The Japanese ‘Wild
Geese': The Recruitment, Roles
and Reputation ofJapanese Mercenaries in Southeast Asia, 1593-1688.
For almost a hundred years, Japanese fighting men were
employed across a wide area of Southeast Asia as mercenaries in the service of the kings of Siam, Cambodia, Arakan, Spain and Portugal and for the directors of the Dutch
East India Company. They were used in dramatic assault
parties, as staunch garrisons and as willing executioners.
Dr. Turnbull will examine activities of the Japanese "wild
geese" (a colloquial term for mercenaries) within the context of the 16th- and 17th -century world.
