Inside-Out Japan: Families Moving in Times of Socio-Cultural Change Other events...
Speakers: Professor Vera Mackie, Institute for Social Transformation Research, University of Wollongong and Associate Professor Leng Leng Thang, Department of Japanese Studies, National University of Singapore.

This public lecture will look at how, in the context of globalization, transnational movement and socio-cultural change, meanings and practices associated with family and kinship are being re-shaped. Professor Mackie will discuss the implications of these shifts on family dynamics within Japan, while Professor Thang will highlight the experiences of Japanese lifestyle migrants who, for varying reasons, have chosen to move to Southeast Asia or Australia. The issues raised in both presentations have implications beyond Japan, as similar demographic and socio-cultural processes are also at work across East and Southeast Asia, and in Australia.

Cost: This lecture is free and open to the public.
