Dear colleagues,
 
Colleagues in Tokyo may be interested in this year's Annual Research Institute for Letters, Arts and Science (RILAS) Forum at Waseda University on 7 December. The theme is "How Should We Record and Pass Down the Stories of Industrial Labour and Experiences? : The Case of Coal Mining" and the forum will feature research from a number of partners involved in the UK/Japan international research network on New Directions in Coal Mining History and Heritage, which I'm currently leading.
 
These include the AHRC-funded "On Behalf of the People: Work, Community, and Class in the British Coal Industry 1947–1994" project, the Japan Association for the Study of Former Coalfields (JAFCOF), heritage practitioners from the UK and Japan and other associated researchers from various Japanese and European institutions.
 
More details on the event can be found in English here, with links to the Japanese flyer. The event will be bilingual, and all are welcome.
 
Best,
Mark
