Hitotsubashi University Japanese Studies in English Lecture Series 2016
Black Women in Japan: Experiences and Perceptions

Speaker: Avril Haye-Matsui, Aichi Prefectural University

Professor Haye-Matsui will speak about the experiences of black women
living in Japan. Her research looks at Japan through the eyes of its
foreign residents and provides an alternative perspective of the foreign
experience in Japan. This presentation will focus on issues of identity,
motherhood, perceptions of beauty and diversity and raises questions about
belonging and how and why non-Japanese women are able to create close knit
communities, raise families and achieve business success in Japan.

Speaker:
Avril Haye-Matsui has lived and worked in Japan for over two decades. She
currently works at Aichi Prefectural University and is co-creator of the
organization Black women in Japan that now boasts over 1000 members.
