This week we are joined by Dr Andreas Musolff, professor at the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies at the University of East Anglia, to discuss the body politic and how metaphors for nations vary across the world. Andreas shares the insights from his recent book, National Conceptualisations of the Body Politic: Cultural Experience and Political Imagination, covering an 8-year survey of over 2,000 students across 29 countries.
This week we are joined by Dr Christopher Harding, Senior Lecturer in Asian History at the University of Edinburgh, to discuss “Japanese as Other”.
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.
