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.
Hosted by Oliver Moxham, Research Project Coordinator at the Sainsbury Institute and researcher of Japanese war heritage, Beyond Japan aims to demonstrate the interdisciplinary breadth of Japanese Studies through interviewing experts on the diverse range of subjects it encompasses from anthropology to international relations to gender. 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.
We are not currently producing further episodes of Beyond Japan but please do listen to our back catalogue, and keep an eye on our website for further updates about activities related to the Centre for Japanese Studies.
