Where is the Literature???
I will be participating in classes and seminars while I am in Japan. I received a notice about some of the ones I can attend on my first days in Tokyo. I signed up for two so far and am very excited for them. I will be taking a class about the role of women in Japan (which I am hoping I will be able to apply to the reading of literature and the portrayal of women in this literature) and a class about Japanese art forms. They both look like they will be very worthwhile, however, I am disappointed to see that there is nothing being offered in literature yet. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to sign up for something in that area one of the days I am there.
Descriptions of classes I have signed up for so far in Tokyo:
Art Education Workshop: Introduction to hands-on activities of Japanese traditional paper work, including discussion of current issues on art education in Japanese schools.
Women's Status: A presentation and discussion on women's status in Japan.
