2023/24 John Howes Lecture in Japanese Studies: Works, Networks, and Good Works: John F. Howes and the early years of Japanese Studies at UBC

February 2 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The John Howes Lecture in Japanese Studies is an annual public lecture launched in 2012 in Professor Emeritus John Howes’ honour. Each year, we invite prominent scholars from around the world to speak to the university community and alumni on topics in Japanese Studies with a focus on humanities. This year’s lecture features guest speaker Andrew Horvat, a former student of John Howes himself.

The talk will reflect on the early days of Japanese Studies at UBC and share John Howes’ career and legacy as a prism through which to view changes in Japanese studies and those who study Japan.
