Alan Kreizenbeck, chair of theater, has been selected by the Japan Studies Association to be a participant in the 2012 Freeman Summer Institute on Japan. The Institute will operate at Hawaii Tokai International College in Honolulu from Sunday, May 20 thru Friday, June 8, 2012.
The workshop aims to provide knowledge about Japan that faculty can use for curriculum development at their home institution. Kreizenbeck will be developing a course that focuses on various forms of Japanese theatre such as Noh, Kabuki, Kyogen and Bunraku. Most expenses are covered by the Freeman Institute, and additional fees are covered by the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Asian Studies Program.
