Japanese Studies at Oxford Brookes is linked to and benefits from a wide network of unique projects managed by departmental staff. From regular guest lectures hosted by the Brookes-based EJRC to material for Japanese-language learners prepared in-house, these projects help to bring new dimensions to the study of Japanese at Brookes.
Let’s Read Japanese is a joint project led by Dr Irène Hill and the Japanese Studies staff. It is a series of graded reading materials for Japanese language learners ‘to read for pleasure’ at different levels. Interesting stories with eye-catching illustrations enhance the learning of the Japanese language and culture.
The Europe Japan Research Centre (EJRC), based at Oxford Brookes, runs a thriving, regular programme of guest lectures by visiting academics from other institutions in the UK and abroad, on a broad variety of topics related to Japan. These complement and extend the themes explored in content modules at Brookes.
We have a Japanese Room , built by a Japanese carpenter (daiku) Kawaguchi Kiyotoshi and his apprentice (deshi) Yuki, residents of the village in Kyushu. Our Japanese room contains: tatami mats; decorative shoji (paper windows); and fusuma (sliding doors).
