No booking required

Through the study of Hafus, we will explore the "Japanese" and "Japanese culture". The aim is to conceptualise Japan as a multicultural/diverse society. This is the first of an exciting workshop series of the "Hafu" & Diversity in Japan" (working title) research group based at Waseda University, Media/Citizenship Research Centre.

Our first workshop focuses on the varying identities of Hafus. The event will kickstart with a talk by the Hafu Project, which involves the art and academia by curating photography exhibitions, producing short videos/documentary, and offering a wide range of participatory events. In the second half of the workshop we will have some discussion time to talk about the agenda at stake, and the future of the research group "Hafu & Diversity in Japan".
