The Tokyo Humanities Cafe is a regular event that brings academics, authors, artists and activists together to discuss topics from the humanities. The event usually has four speakers who discuss their field of research or interest in a lively and accessible way in English, bringing academic topics closer to a general audience. This is done in a bar atmosphere with food and drinks are available while you listen.
The four speakers at the next event are:

• Andrew Fitzsimmons (Gakushuin University) — “The Infinite: Translating a Poem”
• Simon Kalajdjiev (artist) — “Tokyo Glitch Art: Painting with Errors in Virtual Space”
• Rie Makino (Nihon University) — “Japanese Diasporic Writers: Karen Tei Yamashita and Setsuko Ono”
• John Williams — “Under Milk Wood on Sado Island”
