This week we are joined once more by Professor Simon Kaner, Executive Director at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts & Cultures, for a reflective episode on international research post-pandemic. Much has changed in international academic fields as Japanese Studies since March 2020 in response to restricted domestic and international movement. Academic institutes such as the Sainsbury Institute have drastically altered their approach to fostering international research projects with such digital initiatives as this very podcast. Simon will share with us how else these projects have been altered by the pandemic, the pros and cons of such changes and how he believes future international research will look once we’re out the other side.
