Book Launch and Concert of East Asian Music


A unique book release event and concert is planned for Friday, September 7, 2018, at University of Bergen and Western Norway University of Applied Sciences. It is open to the public. A detailed schedule will be posted here when the planning is finalized.

We will celebrate the publication of a new book entitled International Perspectives on Translation, Education, and Innovation in Japanese and Korean Societies (Springer, 2018), which is a major research outcome of the Nordic Association for Japanese and Korean Studies (NAJAKS).

A guest lecture will be offered by one of the distinguished contributors to the book, Professor Lars Larm – a linguist recently affiliated with University of Gothenburg and Lund University, Sweden. 

As the book’s contributing Editor, I will also give a talk, and with pianist Mai Goto I will give a short concert of folk songs from Japan and Korea as well as works by East Asian composers. As the Hebert-Goto Duo, we have recently begun preparing Norwegian and East Asian repertoire in the hope of attaining funding for a recording session and international tour.

The major sponsor for this event is the Japanese Studies department at University of Bergen, and support has also been offered by the Institute of Arts Education at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences.
