The Graduate School of Public Policy (HOPS) and the Slavic-Eurasian Research Center (SRC) at Hokkaido University are delighted to announce the commencement of the Border Studies Summer School (within the framework of the Hokkaido University Summer Institute) which they will host in Sapporo from July 2-5, 2018.
The SRC hosted a summer school on border studies from 2010 to 2014 as part of the Global COE project "Reshaping Japan's Border Studies." Starting in 2016, the Border Studies Summer School has been hosted as part of the Hokkaido Summer Institute, which is a program that brings together distinguished scholars and our faculty members to provide an enriching educational experience to students from across Japan and around the world. The Border Studies Summer School will allow participants to expand their knowledge on courses previously open only to students at Hokkaido University.
This year’s summer school will be a two-part program. The focus of the first half of the lectures will be on Northeast Asia while the second half will be on North America and East Asia. There will also be an excursion to a local museum to learn about Hokkaido. We ask that participants attend all of the above as part of the Border Studies Summer School. We will issue a certificate of completion on the last day of the summer school to those who finish the program.
We will also be awarding scholarships to students who meet the criteria. Please click and download the following PDF file regarding the details of the application procedures as well as how to apply for the scholarship.
