The Center for Japanese Studies is pleased to present: Pecha Kucha: Spring 2012 which will be held on April 20 at 5:30pm in the Tokioka Room (Moore Hall 319). What is Pecha Kucha? It is a presentation style where a short lecture is given 20 slides and are shown for 20 seconds each. The presentations are intended to be visually striking and upbeat. Pecha Kucha at CJS is a popular event where CJS graduate students and faculty get together in a relaxed atmosphere.
We have six individuals giving Pecha Kucha talks this semester: Dr. Gay Satsuma, Associate Director of CJS; Ms. Tokiko Bazzell, Japan Studies Librarian at UH Manoa Library; Dr. Yuma Totani, Associate Professor of History; Mr. James Canegata, MA Student in EALL; Mr. Kei Imafuku, MA Student in Asian Studies; Mr. Stevie Suan, MA Student in Asian Studies.
On Tuesday, January 31, a calligraphy workshop was held for 25 middle school students from Kamehameha Schools. Miki Ogasawara and Gladys Nakahara of the Japanese Section of the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures led the activity. Graduate students of EALL and Asian studies also assisted the workshop. It was a successful event which showcased EALL to the greater community.
