Why Study Japan?

In 2020, Japan Foundation New York asked Former JF Fellowship Recipients to create video responses to various interview questions. We compiled their responses into this video series, Why Study Japan? The fellows discuss a range of topics, from their experiences digging through specialty archives during their Japan Foundation Fellowship, to their vision for the future of Japanese Studies. You can watch the videos below.
