OKAYAMA UNIVERSITY Summer School 2016 Apply now !

1. Program Description
Students will examine the key obstacles to integrating East Asian countries into a tightly-knit community. Under the guidance of a multinational team of academics, students will examine issues of identity, colonial settlement, and contemporary politics in the East Asian context. They will consider both the possibilities and dangers of increased cooperation, and come to understand the preconditions for forming a more systematic regional community. Utilizing Charles Taylor’s concept of “social imaginary,” this course will be an exercise in imagining an East Asian Community that will enjoy a widely shared sense of legitimacy among the peoples of the region.
