Professor Huey Examines Ryukyuan Uses of Japanese Arts

On Friday, September 6, Professor Robert Huey examined chanoyu in the Ryukyu court and three Ryukyuan waka anthologized by Giwan Choho in the 19th century.  Rather than framing the practice of Ryukyuan waka in terms of today’s competing nationalisms, he sees it transcending the wa (Japan) in waka and furthering international diplomacy.  The lecture was sponsored by the Center for Okinawan Studies, with help by EALL and CJS.  Not a seat in the Tokioka room went unspoken for.
