Franco Purini once claimed that Tokyo, and by extension Japan, provided “an enthralling vision of the future’s future.” Despite prolonged economic and political challenges as well as catastrophic disasters, Japan continues to make stimulating advances that provide inspirations and cautions globally. As such, the final iteration of the Monash Mitsubishi Seminar ends with an orientation to future developments and consideration of changing forms of interactions. The seminar examines evolving interactions between people and their social, technological and physical worlds considering various modes and scales of interactions in and between Japan and Australia. Stressing interaction, the seminar will be organized as a series of discussions fostering dialogues between academics, practitioners and audiences about tomorrow’s possibilities seen from Japan today.
This is a free public event but registration is required. The RSVP deadline is COB October 13, 2014. To register, and for more detailed and up-to-the-minute information please visit the event website here.
