Please join us for the launch of the book "Music Generations in the Digital Age: Social Practices of Listening and Idols in Japan" by Rafal Zaborowski. This unique ethnographic work at the intersection of cultural, media and music studies covers a wide spectrum of music-related activities embedded in the daily lives of two Japanese cohorts. The varied case studies, including teen idol groups and virtual idols, aid the detailed examination of the relation between music, generation, and society.

Hosted by the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London, the event will feature a talk and Q&A with the author, Dr Rafal Zaborowski, Lecturer in Digital Culture, and a dialogue with Dr Elisa Oreglia, Reader in Global Digital Cultures, and Dr Ashwin Mathew, Lecturer in Global Digital Cultures. This will be followed by an interactive quiz: "Real Japanese Pop Lyrics or GPT Poetry?". A small reception with drinks and snacks will follow.

This event is free and open to all, but places need to be booked.

If you book a ticket but are unable to attend the event, please kindly cancel your booking.
