Historically Hot: Reimagining Beauty from Japan's Past *Cancelled* Other events...
A public lecture by Laura Miller, Eiichi Shibusawa-Seigo Arai Endowed Professor of Japanese Studies and Professor of History, University of Missouri–St. Louis and 2020 UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

**Unfortunately due to travel restrictions, this public lecture has been cancelled. **

This presentation will feature several reimagined historical figures who are represented by actors, cosplayers, or drawn characters who reflect today's beauty ideology rather than those of the periods they are portraying. Although some efforts are made to depict the costumes and hairstyles of the period, the desire to cater to current beauty norms dominates these productions.

Laura Miller is an internationally prominent scholar of Japan studies and linguistic anthropology, as well as of the body and feminism, girl culture, mysticism and divination in Japan. After graduation from the University of California, Santa Barbara with BA degrees in Anthropology and Asian Studies, she supervised an English language program for a Japanese company in Osaka (1977-1981). She received her PhD in anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1988.
