Study of the Siebold Family Collection and Other Materials Collected in Japan and Taken Overseas in the Nineteenth Century

 

By creating detailed catalogs, complete with digital images, not only of the materials collected by Philipp Franz von Siebold and his son, but several other nineteenth-century Japan-related collections held overseas, NIHU hopes to build a survey and research model for international resource sharing of such materials. The survey was conducted at the State Museum of Ethnology, Munich, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, the Berlin State Library, the residence of the Brandenstein family, and other locations. Workshops on research in deciphering classical texts and studying Japanese artifacts, held annually by the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and other venues, will be continued. We hope these efforts will support the training of young researchers pursuing Japanese studies in Europe and North America.
