After a three-year pandemic-induced hiatus, the Tokyo Humanities Cafe is back this year. The event usually has four speakers who discuss their humanities careers 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:

• Jenevieve Van-Veda (Aberystwyth University, Wales)
“Visualizing the Night Parade of 100 Demons”

• Waiyee Loh (Kanagawa University, Yokohama)
“Singapore and Japan in Comics: Charlie Chan and Rurouni Kenshin”

• Philip Pholeros Porter (University of Technology, Sydney)
“Café Poetry Project – Australia”

• Erica Ward and Kō (artist and perfumer)
“Collaborating to Interpret Tokyo into Art and Fragrance”
