Demon-Hunters of Japan

A slide lecture on the professional sorcerers of Japan, whose career centred on counteracting demonic attack for the fearful nobility.

Following on from her sell-out talk on Japanese conceptions of demons in the medieval Heian period, Laura will next present a slide lecture on the professional sorcerers whose career centred on counteracting demonic attack for the fearful nobility of the period. Most famous of all was Abe no Seimei, who will be discussed as a real person, and then there will be an exploration of his effect on Japanese literary and pop culture right up to the present day. Laura Nakagawa Miller holds a degree in Art History from Cambridge University. She lived for several years in rural Japan where she taught and painted, holding her first one-woman show in 2005. She has lectured on various subjects in Japan, studied calligraphy for several years and was associated with a Japanese Zen Temple.
