Vortragsreihe "Japan and International Migration" im Wintersemester 2021/22
Japan and International Migration: Recent Developments, Emerging Dynamics
This lecture series offers insights into current scholarly works on the topic of "Japan and International Migration". Originally kicked off in spring 2021, this series will be continued in the fall with a focus on international labor and student mobility to Japan. Talks will address the contradictory attitudes towards these newcomers as presented in Japanese politics, business, and society. The fall series will pay special attention to the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic had and continues to have on migrants’ lives in Japan and will discuss what the de facto travel-ban means for Japan’s position in the global web of migration flows.
This semester, most talks will take place from 11am CET to noon; for two sessions, however, the starting time shifts to 4pm CET. Please confirm the starting time from the list below. Advance registration via the indicated Zoom link is required. We look forward to welcoming you to LMU Japan-Center for this virtual lecture series.
Organizer: Prof. Dr. Gabriele Vogt
