Event description

Description

Japan has been a place of fascination throughout the years, yet there is little sustained discussion on how contemporary Japan is situated within the rapidly changing landscape of the New Millennium. This interdisciplinary, one-day Symposium brings together academics, PG students and practitioners to examine the transformation of Japan in the Digital Age, and the transformation of the Digital Age through Japanese culture, practice, politics, technologies, industries and beyond. We wish to provide a supportive and inspiring environment to engage in cross-disciplinary and cross-sector dialogues; to present the opportunity to learn about innovative digital projects, technologies and practices in Japan; and to encourage building a network of those engaged with Japan through their work and lives.

This event is kindly supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.

Our two keynote speakers are:

- Professor Ian Condry, MIT, a leading scholar of contemporary Japanese popular culture. Prof. Condry will discuss his latest research on Japanese/digital cultures

- Mr Gen-i Kazuhito (源井 ), an award-winning media practitioner who will discuss 2.5 Dimension Musical/Theatre (2.5D theatre involves adaptation of anime, manga and video games)

Catering is included.

日本という国、そしてその文化は過去も現在も多くの人々を魅了して止まない。だが、21世紀に入ってからの急激な変化の中で日本の文化や社会がどのように位置づけられるかについての議論はいまだ発展途上である。このシンポジウムの目的は研究者、大学院生、そしてクリエイターが一堂に会することで「デジタルの時代」における日本の変化、そして「デジタルの時代」そのものがもたらす変革を日本の文化や様々な慣行、政治、テクノロジー、産業などを通じて丸一日学際的に論じ、検討することである。このシンポジウムが日本でのデジタル技術を用いた革新的なプロジェクトや技術、そして新たな慣行について分野や所属を超えて発表しまた学ぶことができるような、刺激的で有意義な討論の場となり、また仕事その他で日本と関係を持つ人々が出会い、ネットワークを築くための機会となることを願ってやまない
