Professor David Novak’s Spotlight of Japan’s 3-11 Anti-Nuclear Movement Garners Media Attention

We congratulate EALCS affiliate, Professor David Novak! Novak’s podcast and website “Sounds of Japan’s Antinuclear Movement” received an honorable mention, 2014 Plath Media Award, Society for East Asian Anthropology.

The jury noted the following: “This is a very detailed and well-told story of musical responses to the 3-11 triple disaster. The podcast and website are accessible to general audiences, with an impressive amount of information packed into a 15 minute podcast. The website is a very useful feature and models the possibilities of future media scholarship that combines videos, podcasts, texts, and visual images. We all would have liked to see even more materials linked online, given the potential of this platform for collecting, curating, and sharing resources.”
