                                      The Repository is a new online database of sound recordings, funded by the ARC project girl with bagSonic Practice in Japan ( DP1312035). The Repository features recordings made in Japan. This site will provide research training for postgraduates in Japanese studies and cognate disciplines, as well as providing an important resource to a global community of social scientists in the burgeoning field of sensory studies. Furthermore, many of these recordings will have pedagogical uses in the Japanese language classroom at a variety of levels. The Repository will also provide a useful example to other scholars working in sensory studies wishing to develop cartographies of the senses.

Please join us for the official launch of the website, with presentations by the Chief Investigators of this project:

Introduction and Setting:  Prof. Carolyn Stevens

Theoretical and Methodological Implications: A/Prof Tamara Kohn

Sonic Practice and the Shakuhachi: Dr. Richard Chenhall

How the Repository Works:  Mr Thomas Baudinette, RA for the project
