Video Exchange Project Between a Japanese-Canadian living in an Agriculture-centered Former Japanese Internment Camp and Freshmen Japanese University Students
Date: Saturday, July 21st, 2018 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Speaker: Andrew Meyerhoff (Saga University)
The project involves video exchange between fourteen first year Japanese University students and a Japanese-Canadian living within the former internment camp, now-turned incorporated town. This town is known mostly as a hotbed for agriculture. The Canadian-based correspondent is an avid horticulturalist, growing self-sustaining fruit and vegetable crops, as well as herbs. Close to half the students in the Japanese student group are Agriculture majors and introduce Japanese crops to the Canadian correspondent and two of her sons through video. In addition, the students learn about internment camp life and a local roadside signage project. The goals of the project are four-fold: raising awareness and motivation for students; fostering linkage between cultures (Canadian, Japanese, Nikkei); cross-cultural content-based learning; empowerment and preservation for Nikkei community through cultural bridges. The platform and other features will be discussed. Come attend this event and learn results to date.
