The Political Economy of Cool Japan: the paradox of Japan’s creative industries policy
From its start in the 1980s the institute has organised a series of Nissan Seminars in Japanese Studies. In the academic year 2016/17 they run on Friday evenings at 5.00 - 6.30 p.m. in the first (Michaelmas) and third (Trinity) terms, and on Thursdays at 2.00 p.m. in the second (Hilary) Term. We invite scholars based in the UK to present their most recent research. Members of the general public are welcome to attend.
