CJS Thursday Lecture Series | The Center for Japanese Studies - A 70 Year Legacy of Engaged Learning

Thursday, September 28, 2017
11:30 AM-1:00 PM
Room 110 Weiser Hall Map
Robert Hall, the first director of the Center for Japanese Studies, once remarked: "For both faculty and student, the study of an area on the spot will do more than anything to demonstrate the essential unity, in actual life, of the knowledge encompassed by the different disciplines." In the seventy years since Hall founded CJS, this twin commitment to engagement and interdisciplinarity has never ceased to guide the Center's work. This panel event will convene several Center faculty to discuss CJS's long history of engaged scholarship, beginning with the historic Okayama Field Station in 1950 and continuing to the present day in the form of CJS's various study abroad, service-learning, and internship programs.
