Japan Research Network Edinburgh - bringing together those working on any area of Japan

Posted on 19 February 2015

Together with colleagues at the University of Edinburgh, former Daiwa Scholar Dr Chris Harding is setting up a ‘Japan Research Network Edinburgh’. The Network’s aim is to bring together scholars working on any area of Japan – staff, researchers, and graduate students alike – via a website (JRNE.org ) where they can search for one another via name, institution, and research interests. They will also hold seminars in Edinburgh a few times per year. Their first will be given by Angus Lockyer, on 12th March 2015. Though they are particularly keen to get colleagues in Scotland and the north of England talking to and meeting one another, they would very much like to extend the invitation to scholars across the UK.

Posted on 17 February 2015

Former Daiwa Scholar, Guy Mayman is taking part in DATAMOSH at Oriel Wrecsam until 21 March 2015.  DATAMOSH came about when artists Paul R Jones and Guy Mayman discovered a large archive of 35mm slides, audio cassettes and A4 booklets earmarked for destruction at the Art School where they were working. This material was no longer wanted because of a perception that it had been rendered obsolete by the digital hardware and Wi-Fi access ubiquitous in the 21st Century.
