- The Nippon Club will hold a special lecture by Jay Rubin who is well known as the translator of Haruki Murakami’s novels. The talk will discuss Mr. Rubin’s twenty-five years translating and studying the works of Murakami and take note of Murakami influences in his recent novel, The Sun Gods (published by Chin Music Press in May 2015). His account of the circumstances that led to writing the novel will conclude that identifying influences is no easy task. (This talk will be conducted in English.) Please join us for this fascinating talk! Ask your friends, co-workers and family members to attend, too.

The Strange Child: Education and the Psychology of Patriotism in Recessionary Japan (Oct. 13th 6 pm)
Please join us on Thursday and welcome University of Washington’s Dr. Andrea Gevurtz Arai, who will give an interesting lecture entitled “The Strange Child: Education and the Psychology of Patriotism in Recessionary Japan.”
The Strange Child: Education and the Psychology of Patriotism in Recessionary Japan
Thursday 13 October, 6 PM
Kent Hall, Room 403, Columbia University
No registration required.
This lecture focuses on how the Japanese financial downturn of the 1990s gave rise to the powerful figures of “the strange child” and “the child problem.” Based on her recent book, Arai uncovers the critical conjunctures behind their forcefulness. She argues that these child discourses refocused concerns about precarious economic futures and provided rationale for neoliberal shifts in human capital development and national-cultural ideology. Arai shows how the young have been made the subjects and objects of dramatically altered life conditions of self-development, independence and patriotism. The talk concludes with examples from her multi-site, long term fieldwork and creative responses by members of the recessionary generation.
Andrea Gevurtz Arai received her Ph.D. in Anthropology (2004) from Columbia University. She teaches Japan and East Asia anthropology and society courses at the University of Washington. She is the author of The Strange Child: Education and the Psychology of Patriotism in Recessionary Japan (Stanford University Press, March, 2016); Co-editor of Spaces of Possibility: In, Between and Beyond Korea and Japan (University of Washington Press, Forthcoming, October, 2016) and Global Futures in East Asia (Stanford University Press, 2014).
All events are free and open to the public.

The 2016 Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT; Nihongo Nouryoku Shiken) will be offered at 16 test sites in the United States on Sunday, December 4 (including one new test site this year, in Miami, Florida). Registration is open until October 3.
For American learners of Japanese, the JLPT offers a way to test language skills and evidence of achievement that is comparable with other Japanese learners around the country and the world.
If you live near one of the test sites, please encourage your students to take the JLPT. In particular, if they are interested in attending school or working in Japan in the future, having taken the JLPT will be a credential they can offer to potential employers.
More information, including a list of test sites, a description of the JLPT’s five levels, and a link to online registration, is available at http://www.aatj.org/jlpt-us.
