About Beyond Japan
The Beyond Japan podcast is an exciting means of delivering the latest research in Japanese Studies in digital form. While initially a response to the limitations imposed on our traditional research seminar series by COVID-19, Beyond Japan has gone on to be a dynamic means of taking our research initiatives online, bringing cutting edge topics in the field to you in a widely accessible format. Read our 2020-21 annual report here.
Beyond Japan, hosted by Oliver Moxham, Research Project Coordinator at the Sainsbury Institute and researcher of language and war heritage, aims to demonstrate the interdisciplinary breadth of Japanese Studies through interviewing experts on the diverse range of subjects it encompasses from archaeology to international relations to avant-garde calligraphy. Interviewees are also asked about their background to explore how a blossoming interest in Japan can lead to becoming an expert across a broad spectrum of fields.
