Researcher Information

Message for high school students

What is "culture"? What is "tradition"? How are culture and traditions rediscovered, reinterpreted, and reconstructed in different historical periods? How do history and memories of the past affect people’s identities? These are questions that interest me as a researcher. I am looking forward to discussing these knotty issues with you in the School of Interdisciplinary Science and Innovation.
