 Inoue Yasushi Award event - November 9 (Friday)

AJS-NSW is pleased to support this annual cultural event at which the Inoue Yasushi Award is presented to a scholar of Japanese culture.

In 2018 the awardee is Dr. Roy Starrs of the University of Otago, New Zealand, author of Deadly Dialectics: Sex, Violence, and Nihilism in the World of Yukio Mishima.

The Inoue Yasushi Award was established in 2006 (Australia-Japan Year of Exchange) at the University of Sydney by the Inoue Yasushi Memorial Foundation/Inoue Family and Masanori Ohtani of Sydney (a Board member of AJS-NSW). Dr. Mats Karlsson of the University of Sydney will MC.
