Dear colleagues,

Please join Kyushu University's International Master's Program in Japanese Humanities this coming weekend for a symposium on topics related to object and performance in Asia. We have lined up 15 speakers from a range of different fields and specializations within the humanities, many of which are scholars of premodern Japan. Further details about the symposium, including a schedule, can be found at the end of this e-mail and at the following website:

www.imapkyudai.net/shapes-symposium

All talks will be in English. Attendees will receive a booklet that contains Japanese translations of the presenters' abstracts, and there will also be a number of people present who can help translate from English to Japanese. Which is to say, if you have Japanese colleagues or students who might be interested in coming, please encourage them to join us.

If you plan on attending, please go ahead and RSVP at the above address, as this will help us prepare.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,

Ashton

This symposium brings together top researchers to explore the circulation of objects, texts, and practices, ranging from buildings, statues, paintings, and crafts to performance, theatrical genres, and musical styles in a variety of spatial and temporal contexts. The event will provide a forum for interdisciplinary and transregional discussions focused on processes of exchange, translation, and interaction between cultures of East Asia and beyond.

当シンポジウムでは世界トップレベルの研究者たちが一堂に会し、建築、彫刻、絵画、工芸から演劇、舞台芸術、音楽に至るまでモノや文献、慣習等の流れをあらゆる空間的・時間的文脈の中で探る。東アジアその他の文化間にまたがる交流、理解、相互作用の過程を分野・地域の垣根を超え、討論する場としてこのフォーラムを開催する。
