14th research meeting (September 10, 2022)
On September 10, 2022, we held an online workshop as the 14th Caravan research meeting. Our caravan leader Tomohito Baji gave a presentation. We discussed the directions and principles that should be shared throughout the project, focusing on the concept called “contact zone” proposed by Mary L. Pratt in her book Imperial Eyes: Travel Writing and Transculturation, 2nd edn (New York: Routledge, 2008). We will continue to discuss “contact zone” in the next meeting.
