Japanamerica @ AAS in Philadelphia
I am honored to be part of a panel discussion tomorrow, March 26th, at The Association of Asian Studies Annual Meeting 2010 in Philadelphia, PA. The panel is titled, "The Japan Knowledge Industry Outside the Academy," and is partly intended to bridge the worlds of journalism and academia. I will join authors Karl Taro Greenfeld (Speed Tribes) and William M. Tsutsui (Godzilla on My Mind), journalist Misako Hida (The Wall Street Journal Japan) and Professor Laura Miller (editor, Bad Girls of Japan). Pretty heady company and a potentially provocative topic.
