Harvard Summer School in Kyoto 2018 – Imadegawa Campus

Updated Aug. 21, 2018
Harvard Summer school in Kyoto successfully took place at Imadegawa campus, Doshisha. It was 8 weeks program started from June 4th and ended July 27th. This year, 11 harvard summer school students participated in this program, and attended two academic courses: “Inequality and Society in Contemporary Japan” by Professor Mary C. Brinton and “Japan: Tradition and Transformation” by Professor James Robson. They also enjoyed several class-related field trips which made them deepen their understanding of Japanese history, society and cultures.

In this program, 9 Doshisha students participated in classes as study-partners. 5 students in Professor Brinton’s course and 4 students in Professor Robson’s course. Study-partners have contributed to the classes by sharing their perspectives and insights as local students. They were impressed by the program participants and learned a lot from them through interactions. All the students seemed to make great friendships outside the classroom as well.

There were also great host families who warmly opened their home to the participants and welcomed them as their family members for 8 weeks. Homestay has been one of the essential elements of this program.

At the last day of this program, sayonara (farewell) party was held at Kambaikan building on July 27th. We had over 50 guests including students, faculties and host families. People shared their memories, laughed a lot, cried a little and closed the program with a promise to see each other again someday in the near future. Next year is our 10th anniversary since this program was started at Doshisha and we look forward to another successful year ahead!
