The Twenty-First Century City: Tokyo and Kyoto Dialogue of Civilizations Summer 1 2020 Information Session

Dr. Lori Gardinier and Dr. Thomas Vicino will be co-leading the Japan Dialogue of Civilizations program this summer.

Dr. Lori Gardinier and Dr. Thomas Vicino will be co-leading the Japan Dialogue of Civilizations program this summer. As one of the original Dialogues at Northeastern, this program is one of the most established and longest running programs at Northeastern in partnership with Meiji University in Tokyo.

The Dialogue of Civilizations program is called The Twenty-First Century City: Tokyo and Kyoto to Japan for Summer 1 2020. The courses, POLS 4937 and POLS 4938, count as electives in the Political Science and International Affairs majors and minors, or as open electives in your undergraduate degree. The program’s courses also fulfill the social policy requirement in the Human Services Program. As an interdisciplinary program, it is open to all majors and does not require any background in Japanese. All classes, tours, and activities are in English. A flyer is attached.

We will host two information sessions on:

  • Wednesday, October 23 at 6pm-7pm in 310 Renaissance Park
  • Thursday, November 14 at 6pm-7pm in 909 Renaissance Park

Pizza and refreshments will be served. In this session, you will have an opportunity to learn about the program, itinerary, our host institution, and Tokyo. You will also be able to ask questions and meet the faculty leaders. We encourage you to attend if you are interested in learning more about this exciting opportunity.

Applications can be submitted online to GEO beginning on November 1, 2019 at:
