2014Freeman Institute for Infusing Japan Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum Honolulu, Hawai'i May 18 – June 6, 2014 University of Hawai'i, Manoa
The Japan Studies Association, with a generous grant from the Freeman Foundation, will conduct a 3 week intensive workshop on Japan for faculty and administrators from U.S. two- and four-year colleges and universities. The workshop is for individuals who have little or no prior academic background on Japan and who wish to begin incorporating Japan Studies into their courses. The program is open to faculty in the humanities, social sciences, business or education. Administrators and librarians are also eligible to apply.
The workshop will cover a wide variety of topics relating to Japan, including history, politics, literature, business, and the arts. Its primary purpose is to introduce faculty/ administrators into all aspects of Japanese society so that they can return to their institutions and begin incorporating Japan Studies into their courses.
The workshop will have multiple instructors, primarily drawn from the University of Hawai'i, Center for Japanese Studies but also including noted scholars from other universities.
The workshop will be held at the University of Hawai'i, Manoa campus (UHM) in Honolulu, Hawaii. It is located a short distance from Waikiki. There will be only 14 participants selected for the Freeman Fellowships. Each participant will receive up to $500 to help cover roundtrip airfare to Hawaii. Single rooms, some meals and a small stipend will be provided. Each college or university is required to pay a $650 Program Fee for its participant.
