    We have used various "post-" frameworks to examine Asia. Post-structuralism, post-modernism, post-colonialism, etc. This panel will use posthumanism (going beyond anthropocentrism) as the primary theoretical framework to analyze contemporary Japanese society.

    One paper will examine human, non-human-animal, and plant relationship (multispecies ethnography). Another one will look at entanglement of human body and microbiome.

    If you are interested in doing a paper on this panel, please let me know.
