In July 2021, hosted by the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures, Dr Christopher Hayes and Dr Duncan Breeze brought together an international group of scholars for the event ‘Internationalisation Interrupted’: a workshop that explored the global position of Japan during the build-up to Tokyo 2020. One year on, and two Olympic events later, we now once again invite scholars back for a follow-up event that considers the impact of the games on Japan.
This week we are joined by Dr Eiko Honda, Research and Teaching Associate in History at the Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies and former Robert & Lisa Sainsbury Fellow at the Sainsbury Institute, to discuss Knowledge Production During Crisis.
Oliver is joined by Professor Simon Kaner for a reflective episode on international research post-pandemic. Simon will share with us how research projects at the Sainsbury Institute 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.
