Faculty Research Forum Series

 

The Faculty Research Forum is a dynamic monthly lecture series that highlights the diversity of our academic research within the University of Tokyo community. The purpose is to share processes and projects and to facilitate and nourish collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. Our forum has a fluid format, from formal academic presentations to more informal talks in order to encourage open discussion and the movement of ideas. 

 

Founders: Jaqueline Andall, Veruska Cantelli and Flavio Rizzo

Previous Organizers: Luke Dilley and James Thurgill

Current Organizers: Naomi Berman and Sharity Nelson
