In collaboration with the Akita International University (AIU), Akita Prefecture, Japan, the Center for Japanese Studies (CJS) announces a special four-week course from June 22 to July 17, 2015 to be held at UC Berkeley and AIU, Akita. The course addresses international migration, formation of transnational communities, and immigrant incorporation rapidly unfolding in East Asia, especially Japan, in comparison with the immigration experience in the United States. A total of four successful Berkeley applicants will join their four AIU counterparts to form a class for lectures and field trips in the Bay Area, Tokyo, Hamamatsu and Akita.
Applications will continue to be accepted until all four positions are filled.
