Japan workshop on English primary resources

The East Asia Library is going to offer a workshop on Japan related primary resources in Western Languages. Please see the description below.

10/13 Introducing Japanese Primary Resources in Western Languages

Instructors: Haruko Nakamura, Librarian for Japanese Collection
Ellen Hammond, Curator of the East Asia Library

Time and Place: 4:00 –5:00 pm, SML 207

It is challenging to write a history paper which must include primary sources on Japan when you do not read Japanese. This session will introduce Japanese primary sources in Western languages, including unique archival and rare materials related to Japan at Yale, as well as other library resources such as newspapers and books. Tips on creative uses of primary sources will be provided as part of the session. At the end of session, if there are some interests, we will also provide a brief introduction to Japanese language primary sources including special collections at Yale.
