Andrea Arai: What do “DIO” Creators & Heterotopic Spaces Want?
March 21, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Join us for Asia Week 2018 at UNC-Chapel Hill!
Andrea G. Arai : What do “DIO” Creators and Heterotopic Spaces Want?: Toward an Anthropology of Assembly in Hyogo and Haenam (Genoa and Detroit)
This talk will focuses on the vacant spaces problem in regional and countryside areas in Japan and South Korea, and on the revaluing, rebuilding and re-inhabiting of these spaces by (late 1990s) recessionary generation urban “migrants.” Arai is currently working on several projects that focuse on heterotopic spaces, DIY livelihoods, and “U-Turn/I-Turn” migration in Japan and Korea (and parallels in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere).
Andrea Gevurtz Arai teaches Japan and East Asia anthropology and society courses in the Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington.
