      “Remembering Japan’s 2011 Triple Disaster: A free public screening of the documentary film Tohoku Tomo; introduction and Q&A by Professor Michele Mason, Department of East Asian Languages & Cultures”.   Four years later, we examine the social, political, and artistic landscape that has emerged in the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami, and Fukushima nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011. With Professor Mason, who was living in Tokyo for all of 2011, we will look back at the massive destruction and suffering, take stock of the current situation, and consider what implications this event has for the future of both Japan and the global community.
