Japanese Studies, Monash and the theatre of research
In this talk, I will risk an indulgence to reflect on my time at Monash and on some more recent projects in the arts to broadly speak about Japanese Studies, Monash and the theatre of research.
Peter Eckersall teaches theatre studies at the University of Melbourne. He has an MA in Asian Studies (Monash 1992) and a PhD in Japanese Studies (Monash 1999). From 2014 he takes up a Professorship in Asian Theatre at the Graduate Centre City University of New York.
