A lecture by Romit Dasgupta, Assistant Professor, Asian Studies, UWA.

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.

HIP: The Next Generation

After 60 years of the most recent movement in music scholarship and performance concerned with Historically Informed Performance (HIP), this talk explores where has such research brought us and where is it going? The continuing mission seems to be to seek out new sources, new information: 'to boldly go' where no HIP has gone before. In order to trace these achievements, an exploration of early sound recordings perhaps offers us some insights?

The evening is co-sponsored by ARC Centre for the History of Emotions.
