Abstract

In solidarity with International Women’s Day, researchers and practitioners from Australia and Japan will share perspectives on gender, diversity, and inclusion in academic and other environments, in both countries. Recent attention to gender is unfolding within a set of deeper and longstanding dynamics that define the contemporary academic and corporate environments, including the casualisation of labour and the intersection of class, race, ethnicity, migration status and others that affect everyday institutional practices. How do institutional or corporate practices create barriers for inclusion in different areas of research and education? What are some examples of creative agencies that have been exercised by individuals and/or by a collective to navigate through the dynamics? How to communicate the values of diversity and inclusion in academia and industry? Webinar participants are encouraged to join this collaborative conversation to engage with the conditions of gender in our everyday lives.

 

This is a joint event in collaboration with The Australia, New Zealand and Oceania Researchers in Japan Network (ANZOR Japan). ANZOR is a non-profit, professional organisation with the aim of supporting and connecting Australian, New Zealander and Oceanian researchers in Japan.

 

This event is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Japan Foundation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Tokyo College Symposium: “Religion and the Rise of Capitalism”

イベント予定シンポジウム/Symposium

Wednesday, 9 June 2021 8:30-10:00am (JST) / Tuesday, 8 June 2021 7:30-9:00pm (EST)

This Tokyo College Symposium welcomes Professor Benjamin Friedman to our campus (virtually) for a discussion on the relationship between economic and religious thinking in relation to his recently published book titled “Religion and the Rise of Capitalism.” The symposium begins with a brief presentation by Professor Friedman on the main ideas of the book with remarks by Professor Shinji Nohara and Dr. Rory Schacter to follow. A panel discussion moderated by Professor Takeo Hoshi further explores how political economic thinking is influenced by religious and other intellectual debates in the societies of not only Western countries but in Japan and East Asia as well.
