Upcoming Events

“Rethinking Methodology in Global Diplomacy” Lecture by Prof. SHIMAZU Naoko

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Tuesday, 7 June 2022, 4:00-5:30 pm (Doors open: 3:30pm)

Why do we need to rethink about the way we study and make sense of global diplomacy? In this lecture, I explore how cultural approaches can illuminate important aspects of diplomacy which have not been adequately considered in much of the existing scholarly literature.

“Rereading Proust in 2022” Lecture by Prof. Antoine Compagnon

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Thursday, 23 June 2022, 4:00-5:30 pm (Doors open: 3:30 pm)

In 2022, we are commemorating the centennial of Marcel Proust's death with an extraordinary salvo of publications, exhibitions, and acclamations. “Proust is the man of the year,” advertised the Italian magazine La Repubblica on New Year’s Day. It gives us an occasion to evaluate the magnitude of his novel, Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time, and also to compare this anniversary with the previous one, 1971, a century after Proust’s birth. His star hasn’t stopped rising.

Event Reports

The UK’s ‘Indo-Pacific Tilt’, Lecture by Professor Alastair MORGAN

In its Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy carried out in March 2021, the British government published a brief framework for a proposed ‘Indo-Pacific tilt’ by the UK.

“Globalisation, Empires, and the Making of the Modern World” Lecture by Prof. A. G. Hopkins

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Friday, 13 May 2022, 15:00-16:30 (Doors open: 14:40)

This talk describes three phases of globalisation that have occupied the last five centuries and their role in making the world we know today. The first two phases were associated with the rise of Western empires, which integrated large parts of the world through a process of compulsory globalisation. The third phase, which began after 1945, brought empires to an end and produced the current world order - and disorder.

“Trade war, global pandemic, Ukraine: What we know, and don’t know, about the new political and economic order” Lecture by Mr. Bill Emmott

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

10 May 2022, 3:00-4:30 pm (Doors open: 2:40 pm)

Recent years have featured the US-China trade war, the coronavirus pandemic, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, each of which we can consider “radically uncertain” events that were not in any real sense predictable. This lecture seeks to identify how these events fit into conventional frameworks for explaining the world, how these events might have changed that framework, what elements of the framework remain unknown, and how we should respond to this age of uncertainty.

“Self-organization for Materials Synthesis” Lecture by Prof. FUJITA Makoto

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Tuesday, 5 April 2022 (17:00-18:00 JST)

A wide variety of new structures are created using the phenomenon of “self-assembly,” in which molecules spontaneously assemble and order themselves. This presentation introduces the tiny world of manufacturing, where new structures are magically created simply by mixing metal ions and organic molecules.
