 Inoue Yasushi Award event - November 8 (Friday)

Free Japanese culture event


The Inoue Yasushi Award is made every year to celebrate and encourage Japanese studies in Australia and New Zealand. The award ceremony is combined with a free cultural event.

In 2019 the awardee is Dr. Lucy Fraser of the University of Queensland, whose research interests include depictions of animal-human relationships in Japanese fiction, fairy tales and fairy tale retellings in Japanese and English, and ideas of gender in contemporary Japanese literature, manga, film, and television. She is awarded for her work on Dogs, Gods, and Monsters: The Animal-Human Connection in Bakin’s Hakkenden. 

We will also feature the playing of an animated movie Fuse: Memoirs of the Hunter Girl ( 鉄砲娘の捕り物帳).

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).
