Many thanks to Richard Lloyd-Parry and Dr Mark Pendleton for joining us last Thursday to discuss disaster memory in relation to the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami and the 1995 Aum Sarin Attack in Tokyo. From each of them we gained were able to reflect on the immediate and longer term impact of these catastrophic events, including memorial rituals, the increasing association by proximity to the disaster and the development of ghost stories and urban legends surrounding the events. The event was followed by an engaging Q&A from top Japanese Studies scholars around the country. Those who missed the webinar can watch back through our YouTube channel above.
