Description

As we embark on a humanities symposium that discusses the ongoing processes of building democracy, inclusion in the public space, and discourses civil and uncivil, this opening lecture introduces Japanese sociolinguistic concepts of connectedness, human relationships to space, and aesthetic arrangements of human life in the built environment. Engaging with Edward Soja’s concept of the “thirdspace,” this talk examines how people in majority and margin occupy, conceptualize, and co-create spaces both physical, and in the current environment, virtual. Slide lecture followed by Q&A.
