Tokyo Humanities Cafe 11

Updated: Dec 12, 2019

We're excited to announce our 11th cafe, right at the beginning of a new decade - Thursday, January 9th, 2020, at our usual venue in Shimokitazawa. As always, the event is completely FREE (please just buy a drink at the bar).

Our line-up this time includes two talks on music, one on Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" in Japan, and one on Japanese universities and study abroad programs.

1) Yuiko Asaba (Osaka University / University of Huddersfield) - "Tango in Japan: Performing a Distant Music"

2) Megan Clune (Arts Chiyoda 3331) - "Rethinking Listening in 20th and 21st Century Music"

3) Judith Pascoe (Florida State University) - "On the Bullet Train with Emily Bronte: Wuthering Heights in Japan"

4) Toru Yamada (Meiji University) - "Managing Japanese Study Abroad Programs"

The talks are all pitched (TED-style) at a general audience - so no specialist knowledge is required. There'll also be plenty of time to relax with a drink (or fish and chips) and meet other attendees. Regulars and new faces are welcome.
