Knowledge Sans Frontières: The Quest for Horizontality

In the second lecture of Knowledge Sans Frontières, Dr Michael Lucken – historian and professor at the National Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilisations in Paris (INALCO) – presents new perspectives of the Academy Award-winning film, Spirited Away.
