Dear UH Students in Chinese and Japanese Studies
This summer July 31 through August 17 (three weeks) our department will be hosting the first University of Tokyo-University of Hawai’i Summer Residential Institute in Comparative Philosophy. I am attaching the description and the tentative program for the Institute that includes the participation of several of the University of Tokyo’s most popular teachers. The Institute is a combination of thematic lectures and a close reading of core texts in Chinese and Japanese philosophy.
The costs for the Institute—the $100 application fee and the $300 program fee—will be waived for our own UH students who would like to join the group, and it is probable that we will have funding to cover some meals and social events.
Please let us know if you are planning to apply for this opportunity.
