TalkHouse Tel Aviv - Beten 12, Tel Aviv,
Three fascinating lectures on the everyday life of the Japanese people by three lecturers who have been studying, teaching, and teaching for decades the secrets of Japanese culture and social life – Liat Luft-Moretto, Dr. Helena Grinshpon, Dr. Michal (Mickey) Daliot-Ball.
Liat Luft – Moretto – Relationships & Parenting – Japanese version
I asked a Japanese friend when she saw her husband and that was her answer: “When he goes out to work in the morning I’m still in my pajamas, when he comes home from work I’m already in my pajamas.
How do you live in Japan? How old do you usually sleep with your children in the same bed?
What happens to a man-woman relationship when closeness, devotion, restraint, and renunciation are supreme values in the Japanese family. And what is the ultimate commitment of the man to the workplace and the need and desire for intimacy.
Liat Luft-Moretto, who has been living in Japan for more than a decade, is married to a Japanese man with three children. She reveals to us the marital and family life of the typical Japanese woman and her personal life through the cultural codes and social and personal expectations systems that she and her Israeli and Japanese friends face in everyday life.
Liat Luft-Moretto, owner of ISRAPANIT, a tour guide and private workshop in Japan, has been living in Tokyo since 2001.
Dr. Helena Grinshpon – Culinary and Japanese Identity
Japanese culture is reflected in Japanese cuisine. The design of food and utensils, the ceremonial way of serving, and of course the food itself attest to the way the Japanese perceive themselves and their surroundings.
From social classes to different geographical regions – one might say the Japanese nation as a whole, defined themselves through food. In the lecture we will discover what the Japanese eat and eat and how it relates to the deeper layers of their cultural identity.
Dr. Helena Grinshpon, researcher and lecturer at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on modern Japan in its various manifestations, including consumption culture, urban culture, social change, gender and national identity.
Dr. Michal (Miki) Daliot-Ball – Japanese youth and the cartoon culture of comics, animation and costume games
In recent decades, a subculture of teenagers has been created that has turned comics, cartoons and costume games into their main preoccupation. This subculture, which has provided pleasure and self-expression to many youth, has emerged since the 1990s and has become a powerful creative and consumer force in Japan itself, and the 2000s have become a source of inspiration for many young people around the world.
Dr. Micky Ball, a popular cultural researcher, will reveal the fascinating story of this sub-culture and how it affects the family life and social functioning of Japanese youth, what can be learned from it about the spirit of time and the development of culture and its influence on youth Israelis.
