The role of collective memory and disaster remains in the social construction of disaster cultural heritage in Japan

Project Details


This research project is funded by the Sumitomo Foundation Japan.

My research project aims to explore the relationship between collective memory and cultural heritage with a focus on disaster remains and storytelling in Japan post-the 2011 tsunami. This project will be conducted using the ethnographic approach. This approach will enable me to maintain the quality of first-hand engagement with people and understand story narratives at different levels.
