Japanese Studies Program
The Sumiko Takahara Japan Studies Program was established at Spelman College in 1991 as a result of funds contributed by a consortium of Japanese businesses. The program is an inter-disciplinary program that affords students the opportunity to gain an understanding of Japanese history and culture, and develop skills in the Japanese language.
'3/11 In the Moment' film to be screened at Spelman Nov. 10
Japan U.S. Creatives, Japan America Society of Georgia (JASG), and Spelman College will host a free showing of NY-based television journalist Kyoko Gasha's movie "03/11 In the Moment," which shows how the people of Japan attempt to recover from an earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown that, in the span of a few minutes, wipe out family members, towns, and all that were once part of Tohoku.
Following the showing of the film there will be a Q&A session and reception where Gasha will answer questions about the film and discuss her life as a journalist in New York.
