On December 9th 2017(a Saturday), Eric Johnston will be speaking at Doshisha Women’s College in Kyoto on overseas media reports and images of Japan, and particularly Kyoto, since the Meiji Period. Eric will be giving the speech in Japanese but with an English PowerPoint presentation. Says Eric, “Hopefully, it will be a interesting historical journey.” I’m sure it will be.
Eric’s speech is from 13.00-14.00 and is part of a wider event hled by the university’s English Society which continues until 16:30 with other speakers. This event is open to the public for an admission fee of 1,000 yen. Reservations must be made before November 15th at email@example.com.
