Japan Copes with Calamity book launch

Gill et al. coverOn Wednesday 20 November Japan Copes with Calamity: Ethnographies of the Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disasters of March 2011, edited by Tom Gill, Brigitte Steger and David H. Slater, was launched at the Japan Foundation in London.

Co-editor and contributor Dr Brigitte Steger (centre) and contributors Dr Alyne Delaney (left) and Dr Tuukka Toivonen (right) presented their research and fielded questions from the audience. We were also pleased to hear a musical rendition of the poem ‘Kojo no Tsuki’ (‘Moon over a ruined castle’) performed by co-editor Tom Gill’s children, Jake Daichi Gill and Momoko Gill.
