Noura Alameddin: The Geishas: a Japanese Enigma Explained (English)
Whenever Japan is mentioned, the reaction is always Sushi, electronics and Geisha, the last said with a smirk or expression of distaste. Through my experience with Japanese culture Noura found that there is more to the Geisha than is generally known. In Western perception, geishas are nothing more than exotically dressed prostitutes. But are they really? What is the Flower and Willow world like and how does it function? What role, if any, do the Geisha girls play in Japanese society?
In her talk Noura hopes to give us a look into this world, its history, life style and rituals and try to debunk some of the misconceptions held by foreigners about this misunderstood and maligned section of Japanese Society.
