The Japan Foundation, New York will start a special Studio Ghibli series as part of our Pop Culture Series! For the first episode on Studio Ghibli, we will take a closer look at the life of Hayao Miyazaki, the director of Studio Ghibli, and how it influenced his work, especially the children characters he created. Please join us for a discussion on Friday April 29 at 2 pm EDT with two anime experts, Susan Napier and Helen McCarthy. The discussion will be followed by a live Q&A. If you have any questions about Miyazaki’s worldview and characters, please submit them through Eventbrite when you register. Register
Congrats to all on reaching the end of the spring term–
and a triple round for this year’s May graduates earning an Asian Studies certificate:
恭喜你毕业了 卒業おめでとうございます 졸업을 축하해
Plus, an early welcome to students enrolled in CST235 East Asian Cinema this fall: glad to add you to the email list–
- feel free to send Dr. Kingsbury a quick “unsubscribe” if that’s your preference
- grads will be dropped from this list unless they request otherwise
Asian Studies Intern Jennie Piotrzkowski has been hard at work improving this blog, and we’ll soon have a new round of featured student projects to showcase here. (If you’re one of those project-makers, please remember to coordinate with her this week and next.)
We’re all hoping for a return to IN PERSON study abroad next year, and Dr. Tippen and I will soon be turning wheels toward the 5-week program next May and June, at Tunghai University in Taiwan. Chatham also has strong program partners in Japan, South Korea, China, and elsewhere–so, if study abroad is on your horizon, be sure to connect with Karin Chipman so you can make the most of those opportunities (including scholarship/funding possibilities).
For those interested in Taiwan (and all the issues that connect through it), here’s an important talk by longtime U.S. diplomat Richard Bush, next week, May 5 9:00am. The topics he’ll be addressing affect not only Taiwan, but global power balances and democratic values over the coming decades. Hope to see you there–
best wishes for a brilliant May ahead,
Join us on Thurs., Feb 4 7:00-8:30 pm at

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is open to U.S. citizens who have or will have attained at least a Bachelors Degree by the start of their grant. These are funded opportunities for conducting research, studying toward (and in some cases fully earning) a graduate degree, and teaching English in one of over 140 countries around the world.
This year, Fulbright has organized virtual Group Presentation Sessions for institutions to invite students and alums to learn more about the opportunities available. See this flyer for details and a clickable registration link to join Chatham’s scheduled session at 5 pm EST on March 30, 2021. The event is posted on myChatham and anyone can register directly for the session here.

What an opportunity! For anyone interested in migration issues, South Asia and its diasporas, and/or the craft of writing, this is an event not to be missed. Bring your questions to the Q&A with Mohsin Hamid, sponsored by the MFA in Creative Writing and Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures:
Monday, March 26, 2018
Mellon Board Room
Mohsin Hamid is the author of four novels, Moth Smoke, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, and Exit West, and a book of essays, Discontent and Its Civilizations.
His writing has been featured on bestseller lists, adapted for the cinema, twice shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and translated into over thirty-five languages.
Born in Lahore, he has spent about half his life there and much of the rest in London, New York, and California.
This is the new site for information about International Studies certificates, courses, and activities at Chatham. It also features student projects from these courses and activities. We hope this will be a useful resource for all students and faculty engaged with international life in and beyond our campus. Welcome!
