Foodies at Baruch won’t want to miss this event!
Join us for a delicious and in-person writing workshop with this semester’s Harman Fellow, food writer Eric Kim. Kim is currently a staff writer for the New York Times and regularly has recipes featured in NYT Cooking. Many of these recipes call upon his Korean-American background, and the fusion between both cultures. Oftentimes they feature backstories, sometimes historical, sometimes personal, but always written in a style that is wonderfully unreserved and engaging.
Kim has also worked as a contributing editor at Saveur, a digital manager at Food Network, a teacher of writing and literature at Columbia and as a senior editor at Food52.
While working at Food52, he won over readers with his column “Table For One”, a series of pieces all focused on the joy and catharsis of dining alone. His writing has been featured in The Washington Post and Bon Appétit, and his debut cookbook, Korean American: Food That Tastes Like Home is scheduled for release in March 2022. Kim is our first Harman Fellow food writer.

8th Annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) at Baruch College
Baruch students will join undergraduates from around the world in presenting their own original research on panels throughout the day at the 8th Annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR), Sept. 27-29.
This conference is free and open to the public to attend through the ICUR App, which features the full schedule of panels taking place at 15 universities in 12 countries on 5 continents, all coordinated by Monash University in Australia and the University of Warwick in the UK. (Register on the ICUR app here or through the website.) The app allows participation in question and answer sessions.
Baruch’s 28 participants come from all three Baruch schools and many different fields. They’ll be on panels linked in real time with undergraduates at universities in England, Australia, South Africa, Belgium, and France, all presenting their own research. WSAS History Professor Katherine Pence is coordinating Baruch’s participation in the conference, which is supported by Baruch’s Office of the Provost.
Monday, Sept. 27-Wednesday, Sept. 29,
Location: Zoom via the ICUR App
Manga/Comics and Translation Symposium
This symposium invites scholars, translators, and professionals to discuss various processes and challenges of translating Japanese-language comics (manga) into English. It will illuminate the relatively invisible “work” of manga/comics translators, including their skills and challenges. In addition, the symposium will also highlight the specific nature of comics/manga medium. Unlike translation of text-based literary works, the translation of comics (manga) involved its media specific elements, including comics publishing conventions, reading orders, its formal nature (i.e. the image-word hybrid form), etc.
*The photos above are the covers of the manga titles translated by the invited guest lecturers/translators.
The invited guest lecturers/translators are:
– Dr. Mari Morimoto (DVM), a NYC-based translator of Japanese comics
– Dr. Ryan Holmberg, an art historian/translator (Duke University)
– Professor George Touris, an instructor (CUNY)
– Dr. Shige (CJ) Suzuki, Baruch College (Baruch College, CUNY)
Date: April 6th, 2017
Time: 12:40 to 2:05 pm (club hours)
Place: VC7-150 (Vertical Campus 7th floor #150)
The Vertical Campus is the “B” building of the map on the following website. Enter from the door located at the corner of East 24th and Lexington Avenue.
Please go to the following page and complete the registration. *Due to the limited availability of the seats, all attendees must register.
The event is open to all. Individuals who are not affiliated with Baruch College needs to present your ID to the security officer at the entrance.
Main Guest Speakers:
(1) Dr. Mari Morimoto
Osaka-born and Manhattan-raised, Mari never strayed far from urbanity until she spent nine years at Cornell. Actually, it’s Dr. Morimoto, whose “real job” as a big city veterinarian often wars with her “moonlighting” as a freelance manga translator. She got her foot in the door with VIZ Media through luck and circumstance, and since then has expanded her resume to include panelist, panel leader, Guest of Honor personal assistant and interpreter, and Guest of Honor at several northeast conventions. She has also contributed several articles to the English edition of SHONEN JUMP. A highlight of her translating career was meeting and rubbing elbows with Dragonball creator Akira Toriyama. As a child, she had the honor of meeting the late Osamu Tezuka. Her current titles are Naruto, Inuyasha, and Dragon Eye, but she has also previously translated Dragonball, Maison Ikkoku, One Pound Gospel, Knights of the Zodiac, and the DiGi Charat anthology.
(2) Dr. Ryan Holmberg
Dr. Ryan Holmberg is a Visiting Lecturer at Duke University, and an Academic Associate of the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures. As a freelance art historian and critic, he is a frequent contributor to The Comics Journal, Artforum International, and Art in America. As an editor and translator of manga, he has worked with Breakdown Press, Drawn & Quarterly, Retrofit Comics, and PictureBox Inc. His edition of Tezuka Osamu’s The Mysterious Underground Men (PictureBox) won the 2014 Eisner Award for Best U.S. Edition of International Material: Asia. He is also the author of Garo Manga: The First Decade, 1964–1973 (Center for Book Arts, 2010).
The symposium is organized by the Japanese program with assistance of Baruch Japan Club. It is sponsored by the Center for Global Partnership, the Globus Lecture Series and the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature, and Baruch Japan Club.
