Dear Kinejapan list members
As a part of the international workshop "Interrogating Okinawa: Memories, 
Meanings and Images", the National Institute of Japanese Studies and the 
University of Sheffield are hosting an exciting event of film screening and 
public lectures on March 6 in Showroom Cinema in Sheffield. The film to be 
shown is Takamine Go's Untamatgiru (1989) and Takamine will be present there 
for Q and A. We are also very lucky to have Aaron as a speaker for this 
event. After Aaron's talk, the screening and Q & A with the director, there 
will also be an annual distinguished lecture for the National Institutes of 
Japanese Studies by Sabine  Fruehstueck.
Below is the detailed program of the event. All events on March 6 are open 
to public and registration is NOT required. I hope that some of you who 
live in England could join us for this fascinating event!
For any inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact either me (Mika Ko: 
M.ko at sheffield.ac.uk) or Kylie Wheeler (Administrative Officer, White Rose 
East Asia Centre, University of Sheffield : k.wheeler at sheffield.ac.uk).
The program is also available at:
