Cultural Encounters    Lecture Series


Dina Heimann first visited China in 1985. Her voyage led to her bestselling book, Sabras on the Silk Road. She has since returned frequently to China and East Asia as a tour guide, journalist and researcher. She is also a popular lecturer and writer on subjects related to China and East Asian culture.
Travelling through East Asia, she learned not only about its rich histories, revealing philosophies and extreme geographic features, but also about our own culture. The perspective we get on our own culture comes from comparing our systems and ways of thought with those of others. This series is a chance to gaze into the looking glass while assessing cultural differences. Dina has a B.A. in Geography and M.A. in Anthropology from Tel Aviv University.

Japan 8.00pm on Sunday 30 November.
We will examine the culture of a nation that often leaves us confused. While Japan coped with a triple disaster in March 2011 of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster, the world stood amazed at the stoic behavior of its people. What in Japanese culture prepares them to deal so steadfastly with disasters?
