Free One-Day Workshop: Contemporary Japan and U.S.-Japan Relations

Session(s) date

Session(s) date: 
Saturday, November 16, 2019 - 9:00am to 3:30pm

The USC U.S. - China Institute, Japan Society New York, and National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) are offering a complimentary one-day workshop on Japan at USC for educators. 

The United States and Japan are treaty allies with a long history of successful cooperation. We share many of the same security and environmental concerns. Our economies are highly integrated, with immense trade and investment flowing both ways. Our economic relationship, however, has had its ups and downs. In this day-long workshop, we’ll examine U.S.-Japan relations, discuss doing business in and with Japan, and the design of Japan’s cities.

There is no cost to participate. All materials, refreshments, parking, and lunch will be provided.
