Looking at Japan through Masculinity: From Salarymen to Herbivores Other events...
A lecture by Romit Dasgupta, Assistant Professor, Asian Studies, UWA.

This public lecture looks at the tremendous social, cultural, and economic changes Japan has undergone over the six decades since the end of World War Two, not through conventional frameworks, but through a lens of gender, specifically masculinity. It draws upon Dr Dasgupta’s recently published book, 'Re-reading the Salaryman in Japan: Crafting Masculinity' (Routledge, 2012) to look at the ways in which the salaryman came to embody Japanese national identity from the 1950s until the 1990s, and how, even in the recessionary post-1990s context, the discourse of salaryman masculinity continues to be a visible presence on the social landscape.
