Listen: Tomoko Sakomura on "Picturing a Classic: The Tale of Genji in Japanese Visual Culture."

Earlier this fall, Associate Professor of Art History Tomoko Sakomura delivered her lecture "Picturing a Classic: The Tale of Genji in Japanese Visual Culture" as part of the Aydelotte Foundation's Second Tuesday Cafes. Download a pdf of images used in her presentation.

Second Tuesday Arts & Humanities Cafes are a monthly series that highlight the intellectual relevance of humanities approaches to arts and culture, on topics ranging from visual narratives in Japan, to reflections on life and death in South Indian religions, to current intersections of theater, dance, and music performance in the United States. Events are geared for individuals with no formal background in the arts and humanities. The only requirement is curiosity.
