Professor Pamela Asquith will be our guest speaker for the 11th International Primatology Lecture: Observing Primatologists: My journey into Japanese Primate Studies. In this lecture, Prof. Asquith will describe her research journey that began 50 years ago, into the language, history, and the culture of field work, and reflect on how these factors shaped primatology in Japan. In keeping with the goals of the lecture series, she will offer a few reflections on doing research in changing scientific environments.
