Thanks to a generous grant from the Association for Asian Studies, the Music Department and the East Asian Studies program are able to invite anthropologist Christine Yano to Davis next week (April 16-17). Please see her impressive bio here: http://www.anthropology.hawaii.edu/People/Faculty/Yano/
She’ll be giving two lectures–a Music Department Valente lecture on the Japanese enka singer Misora Hibari, and the other based on her latest research on the globalization of Hello Kitty. Here are the links (and fliers) to both talks:
We welcome students or faculty from Performance Studies to both talks!
