We welcome two new SUPRA Students at NIAS!

The next two weeks we have the pleasure of welcoming Lasse and Karoline at NIAS.

Lasse Lehtonen

I'm a PhD candidate from the University of Helsinki and currently working on my thesis on the Japanese composer group Shinkō sakkyokuka renmei (active from 1930 to 1940). My research includes both cultural viewpoints as well as musical analysis and aims at shedding more light on a topic and musical world that is extremely interesting and versatile but rather rarely studied in the West.



Karoline Opåsen

I am currently working on my master's thesis in social anthropology at the University of Bergen and Christian Michelsen Institute. My thesis base on five months of fieldwork on the outskirts of Delhi, India, and is an ethnographic study of what may happen when a non-governmental organization intervenes in a complex, local reality to create change building on the concepts and ideology of waged work and “women empowerment.”
