Seminar by Prof. Ulrike Schaede, UCSD
On August 9th, the CAMPUS Asia Summer School, Tokyo 2013 came to a successful conclusion. Held at the University of Tokyo (UT) from July 29th to August 9th, students from the three CAMPUS Asia member institutions engaged in a vigorous and interactive educational experience for two weeks. In the first week, Professors Shiming Fan and Xiaoming Zhang of Peking University (PKU) and Professor Sahashi from Kanagawa University led modules and discussions on the contemporary issues surrounding the China-Japan relationship.
On July 31st, students participated in a one-day trip to the Teijin Company, the Taito Ward Community Center, and the Tokyo Skytree. Students glimpsed the features of Japanese business, technology, and the structures behind local community organization.
On the second week, Professors Tay Gyun Park and Geun Lee from Seoul National University (SNU) and Professor Yasuyo Sakata from the Kanda University of International Studies provided guidance and moderation for student discussions on the state of Japan-Korea relations, as well as other issues in the East Asia region.
On August 7th, a group of 21 students from PKU, SNU, and UT visited Minami-soma City in Fukushima prefecture. Students had the unique chance to witness the disaster zone with their own eyes and to listen firsthand to the stories and perspectives of local citizens and city officers on their past experiences and continuing struggle in overcoming their many challenges. Through this two week program, students and faculty from all three schools deepened friendships and understandings between each other.
