Today I am happy to introduce the second and final part of our interview with Prof. Hashimoto Yuta (National Museum of Japanese History), Dr. Laura Moretti (University of Cambridge), and Mr. Joseph Bills (University of Cambridge) on Minna de honkoku and the Cambridge Summer School in Japanese Early Modern Palaeography, which can be viewed or listened to at the embedded video below.
The first part of the interview focused on the history of Minna de honkoku and the Cambridge Summer School in Japanese Early Modern Palaeography, and the use of Minna de honkoku in an educational setting. Today’s part of the interview continues to focus on these questions, but also explores the planned future development of both Minna de honkoku and the summer school. The interviewees also discuss the use of digital tools in the Classical Japanese classroom and trends in the field of Japanese studies more generally.
Thank you for watching or listening! If you would like to see more interviews like this in the Digital Orientalist please let us know!
