Kansai Regular Meeting 2022: A Joint-presentation session together with the Wakate Lab of the Society for the Study of Japonisme
 (This event will take place in Japanese only)

: December 17th (Sat), 2022     13:30-16:45 (reception opens from 13:00)
Venue: The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto [Lecture Hall, 1F]

Theme: Japonisme in Theatre
Outline: Up until the present, the Kansai Regular Meeting has mainly focused on organising exhibition tours. However, we feel that providing venues for our members, especially for our young researchers to present and to further deepen their research through discussion, is another important mission to our society as a whole. Therefore, we decided to organise a joint-session with the Wakate Lab under the lead of Saskia THOELEN, in which we invite two doctoral students to present their current research.
