Japan Cities in Transition Blog

I was reminded again today of the awesome work that is occurring on (and off) the Beloit College campus, in particular on the Japan Cities in Transition blog, In Search of Modern Japan. This is the second year for this blog with a total of eight students studying abroad in three different universities in Japan.

The purpose of the blog is to:
"help them [students] explore the city as concept, the city in practice, and the city as imagined by its inhabitants. Through the experience of writing this blog, we hope all students in this class can understand more fully the rich diversity of experiences that await them." It is a great privilege to read through the students experiences and see them process, analyze and evaluate those. Please check out the blog and/or, better yet, comment and interact with the students. I know they would enjoy the feedback and interaction.
