Princeton University Global Seminar 2018 in Kyotanabe

Updated Aug. 24, 2018
  Every summer Princeton University holds a variety of seminar all over the world.This year, Professor Imani Perry led the seminar titled with “Japan and Black America: Along road of Discovery” in Kyoto.15 participant students stayed in Philips Hall in Tatara campus and studied at Kyotanabe Campus during this seminar.

  This seminar was composed of three parts. Lectures, Japanese language classes and excursions. Lectures were conducted by Professor Perry from Princeton and Professor Wilkins from Doshisha. The group also visited theme-based places like Jazz club, record shops and so on. In the middle of the seminar, SIED held two events for giving this opportunity to many students at Kyotanabe campus. At the Uchiwa event, all the participants could fully enjoy not only making Uchiwa but also knowing each other by chatting. At the Speak up with Princeton, Princeton students made presentation and shared their interesting activities in Princeton University.

 15 students learnt Japanese language through classes and daily encounters enthusiastically. Some Doshisha students supported them as Language Partner and they seems to have made lasting friendships. Even though almost all of students came with no knowledge of Japanese language, we could hear many Japanese words and phrases, sometimes in Kansai-ben! , at the farewell party held on the last day of the seminar.

  We hope all participants could find something precious for their life in this seminar!
