Identify the geopolitics historically involved in the practice of “visualizing postwar Tokyo.” The history of postwar Tokyo reveals an essential feature of the modern city, i.e., the city as a place of visualities. In postwar Tokyo, countless gazes fell upon others; gazes from and upon Americans and the Emperor, gazes going up skyscrapers or rushing aggressively through the cityscape, and gazes twining and wriggling among classes, genders, and ethnic groups in downtown Tokyo.

Analyze the history of change and development in postwar Tokyo from different perspectives using archived photographs, films, and TV programs. Tokyo emerged out of the ruins of war to become a large city of 10 million people in only a quarter of a century. During this process of change, the capital of a military empire that once invaded East Asia experienced occupation by the U.S. armed forces, hosted the Olympic Games, and transformed into a consumer hub where young people could enjoy economic “wealth.”

What if it didn't have to be this way? For the past 2 years, Acumen has been applying lean experimentation principles to the collection and use of social impact data. We call this new approach 'Lean Data." We've learned that social entrepreneurs can use new technologies to gain information about customers more quickly and efficiently than ever before, yielding powerful business insights about how they can make products, services and programs more meaningful for customers.
