Event Description:
Dr. Merry White is professor of anthropology at Boston University. She received her A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard University. Dr. White frequently travels to Japan to research contemporary social and cultural topics, and has published books about Japanese education, internationalization, adolescence and popular culture, and family and social policy.

Her latest book, Coffee Life in Japan, is part ethnography and part memoir. In it, White traces Japan’s café society over the past one hundred and thirty years. She also examines the impact that the coffee culture has had on Japanese society and their ideas of public space and modernism.
