Issue 23 Summer 2018

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our Summer 2018 e-magazine.

In this edition, we have exciting reports on projects led by our Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellows who are all wrapping up their fellowship research with us and preparing for their exciting onward journeys.

We are delighted to feature Durham University’s Oriental Museum and introduce exhibitions on Japan in London and Yorkshire. Our Librarian wrestles with the theme of sumo prints while Simon Kaner gives us a digest of his national and international activities as he continues to jet set around the world.

We hope you enjoy our summer e-magazine!
