Andrea Arai

This talk will focuses on the vacant spaces problem in regional and countryside areas in Japan and South Korea, and on the revaluing, rebuilding and re-inhabiting of these spaces by (late 1990s) recessionary generation urban “migrants.” Andrea Arai is currently working on several projects that focus on heterotopic spaces, DIY livelihoods and “U-Turn/I-Turn” migration in Japan and Korea (and parallels in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere).

Arai teaches Japan and East Asia anthropology and society courses in the Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington.
