Lecture (Prof. Federico MAZZINI) A Cultural History of Hacking

The traditional historical narrative locates the birth of hacker culture in US universities in the 1960s. This talk will look at hackers as part of a longer chronology, beginning with science fiction novels at the end of the 19th century, continuing with radio hams in the 1910s and “phone phreaks” in the 1970s, and ending with computer hackers in the late 20th century. It will examine both what hackers and proto-hackers wrote about themselves and how they were perceived by the print media.

Book Launch (Lecture by Dr. Olga KHOMENKO) “The Faraway Sky of Kyiv. Ukrainians in the War”

On July 25, 2023, Chuo Koron Shinsha published Dr. Komenko’s book, ‘The Faraway Sky of Kyiv. Ukrainians in the War’, offering a unique perspective on the war in Ukraine. This book originated from her experience of the war in Ukraine and stories from family members, friends, and former students. Her motivation to write this book came from being interviewed by Japanese media in early 2022. The questions she was asked lacked general knowledge of Ukrainian history and culture; therefore, she decided to provide a voice for Ukrainians instead.

Blog Beyond disciplinary boundaries: Impressions of an interdisciplinary Research Institute

My main reason for conducting research at Tokyo College in Japan was the institute itself. Tokyo College, established in 2019, is a relatively new institute that faced challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic shortly after its founding.
