The episode features the host, Oliver Moxham, speaking with Mark Player. Mark is the 2021 Ian Nish Prize winner with the article “UtoPia: An early history of Pia and its role in Japan’s ‘self-made’ film culture” published in Japan Forum. The article itself can be read here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/09555803.2021.1895283
I found the podcast really interesting and would recommend people give it a listen.
BAJS members should get in touch with Oliver or Mara Patessio (BAJS’s Executive Secretary) with suggestions about content for future podcasts – or indeed if they would like to volunteer to take part in the podcast themselves, perhaps talking about their research, publications, or perhaps even Japanese Studies related books that they have recently read.
