2018 JCMU Symposium

2018 JCMU Symposium - For Flier.png

The 2018 JCMU Symposium will provide a forum for scholars and teachers of Japanese culture, Japanese language, and English language to gather and exchange knowledge in their area of expertise. The conference features individual paper presentations as well as panels and roundtables at which faculty and graduate students present and discuss new research and pedagogical tools.

The Japan Center for Michigan Universities (JCMU) study abroad program is a product of the strong sister-state relationship between the State of Michigan and Shiga Prefecture. It is located on the shore of Lake Biwa in the City of Hikone, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Our programs are dedicated to building relationships between Japanese, Americans, and other nationalities through active learning and participation in language, culture, family life and society. JCMU has been welcoming students of all majors since 1989. Students do not need to attend a member university to participate.
