During this day, PhD students at the department will give presentations regarding themes related to their research, spanning from Chinese prison literature to Japanese manga.

The Research Day will be held at the Museum of Ethnography, and is open for everyone. Students interested in Asia are especially welcome. The entrance is free of charge, and lunch as well as fika will be prepared by the museum’s restaurant – Matmekka – and offered by us!
