12th HISF Workshop, alumni meeting / 第12回HISFワークショップ・OB/OG会

Dear Honjo International Scholarship Foundation Alumni,

Hope everything is going fine with you.

We would like to inform you upcoming Honjo International Scholarship Foundation event in November.

We really hope all of you can join the event.

【Honjo International Scholarship Foundation Workshop vol.12】

Lecture: “Tibetan Culture and History ―tracing Tibetan study in japan―“

Speaker: Gazangjie, Ph.D. (Lecturer at School of Ethnology and Sociology, Qinghai Nationalities University)

Date: November 6, 2016 (Sun)

Time: 3:00-4:20pm Workshop/ 4:30-6:00pm Party

Venue: Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu [Planets Room] (6th Floor)

※ This time the lecture will be about Social Cultural aspects of Tibetan. Tibet had been introduced in the Hollywood movie “Seven Years in Tibet”, starring by Brad Pitt in 1997. But because of the restriction to enter into Tibet for a long time, its unique socio-cultural aspects are unfamiliar to the world till then. Honjo International Scholarship Foundation accepted Dr. Gazangjie as a scholarship candidate from Tibet for the first time in 2014. We got opportunities to be taught about Tibetan history and culture from him. The lecture will be about the Tibetan culture based on Buddhism. We wish the lecture will be a catalyst to reconfirm the importance of conservation and transfer of traditional cultures to the next generation by understanding about other culture and religion that is different from our own and respect each other.

※Anyone other than Honjo International Scholarship Foundation scholars and alumni can also join, but he/ she must register to previously. Please email us NAME/ AFFILIATION/ EMAIL by October 31, 2016 (Mon)

※To those who are thinking to join from outside of Tokyo area, we can support your travel expenses. So please let us know.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the seminar and the party.

In general, the economic relations between two countries can be understood by the statistics of the trade transactions between them, but in fact the inflence of the third party also plays an important role in the economy of a country. However, it is very difficult to observe the influence of the third party. International Input-Output Table of Yokohama National University (YNU-GIO) has succeeded to quantify the third party influence. Nagendra Shrestha, Ph.D. will explain more about the flow of the complecated world economy using that YNU-GIO. Let’s explore the hint of economic development and  learn about the mechanism of occurrence of the Global Financial Crisis.
