It is with great joy that we announce the bestowal of the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette, to Professor Joy Hendry on 26 July by Ambassador Tsuruoka at the Japanese Embassy in London. The award recognizes her many contributions to mutual understanding between Japan and the UK.
The award is well deserved, not only because of her tireless activities as the ‘founding mother’ of JAWS and senior editor of the JAWS Routledge series.
Prof. Hendry is interviewed by Laura Dales in JAWS Newsletter No. 50.
