Spring 2021 CJS Chair's Greetings

January 25, 2021
Dear Colleagues and Friends, I hope the beginning of the new semester is treating you well! Watching the inauguration last week, many of us reaffirmed our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social and environmental justice at this time of rapidly changing sociopolitical conditions. For the Spring 2021 semester, the Center for Japanese Studies is hosting a series of exciting online events, many of which will contribute towards realizing these goals. For the sake of the online audience’s attention span, we will keep our lectures and symposia shorter than usual, but without sacrificing time for extensive discussion.
