JAPAN: LEGACIES OF WWII
Inaugural InFocus Global Seminar; THE NEXT OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO BE A PART OF THIS MAYTERM EXPERIENCE IS MAY 2018.
In 2016, laying the groundwork for President Obama’s upcoming historic visit to Hiroshima, Secretary of State John Kerry said, "Everyone should visit Hiroshima, and everyone means everyone." Moravian College is proud to provide an opportunity for students to visit Hiroshima as part of this inaugural InFocus Global Seminar. Students will visit important historical and cultural sites; learn about diverse Japanese perspectives about peace and war; and dip into fun and fascinating aspects of Japanese cuisine, history, entertainment, art, religion and culture. Led by two Moravian College professors, students will explore firsthand the continuing legacy of World War II, be exposed to the history and urgent contemporary questions regarding nuclear weapons, and meet with various individuals and groups who are involved in creative efforts to build peace cultures in Japan and the world.
