The briefing session on GSP394: Transnational Community and Immigrant Incorporation in Japan and the U.S., was held on July16 (Thu), 2015.
This intensive short-period PBL course, which lasted four weeks, had its initial start at UC Berkeley on June 22 (Mon) for a two-week-long U.S. session and then switched its location to Japan for another two-weeks. Throughout the course, the students studied about the future of new generations of youths growing up in social diversity and with multiple identities, and the dynamics of large-scale social transformations occurring in cultural, economic and political debates, choosing “immigration, family and community” as the main theme.
The students presented their findings to the audience in groups at the AIU Lecture Hall. About 50 students, faculty members and staff attended the event, who also actively exchanged their thoughts and ideas following the presentations.
