W. G. Beasley Memorial Lecture 2017 - video available

15 December 2016

W. G. Beasley Memorial Lecture, hosted by the SOAS Japan Research Centre took place on 15 December 2016.

Now in its fourth year the lecture never disappoints with its stimulating subject matter. Professor Aronson’s presentation Countering Stereotypes about Japan: Examples from Academia and Business discussed the idea that Japan is often characterised by stereotypes and viewed as a 'unique' country, but that it is important to treat Japan as a 'normal' country when it comes to analysing its culture, business and people.

The full lecture is now available to watch.
