Eiko Siniawer, ‘Waste and Well Being in Post-War Japan’
April 17, 2019 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
In this lecture, Eiko Maruko Siniawer will examine how ideas about waste and wastefulness have shifted in postwar Japan, from the mid-1940s through the present day. Discussions of what constituted a waste of time, stuff and resources, she will show, reflected a changing if persistent search in daily life for meaning, value and well-being in a financially affluent and mass consumerist Japan.
