Program Description:
Honors Geographic Perspectives: Japan

May 14-May 27, 2018


Program Description

Japan panorama

The Geographic Perspectives course examines the interactions between the history of Japan and contemporary issues in Japanese society, politics, the economy, and education while exploring the development of human cultures through the observation of literature, the arts, design and architecture. The Applied Ethics course explores Japanese worlds, both ancient and modern aiming to use Hermeneutic Phenomenology to expose and exhibit how ethical and aesthetic ideas are shaped by various practices within Japanese culture. We will visit schools in Sendai that we worked with during the semester as well as historical places in Kyoto, Toyota related industrial museums in Nagoya, and the Gifu University. Throughout the trip, students are fully exposed to various Japanese traditions past and modern as we walk through different towns.
