Commemorative lectures on the Ishihama Collection

2009-11-12 (Thu) 2:00 p.m. - 4:40 p.m.

The Osaka University Library will hold commemorative lectures on the Ishihama Collection on Thursday, November 12. The Ishihama Collection is an enormous collection, both in quality and quantity, of foreign books, some 40,000 in all, donated by the late Oriental Studies scholar Dr. ISHIHAMA Juntaro. The Ishihama Collection includes materials on the Mongolian and Hsi-hsia languages, books in Chinese, Dunhyang-related documents, and Western books on history and linguistics. 

Two lecturers have been invited to speak: TANAKA Katsuhiko, professor emeritus at Hitotsubashi University and TSUTSUMI Kazuaki, associate professor at Graduate School of Letters, Osaka University. They will give interesting lectures on the ISHIHAMA Collection and the academic world of Dr. ISHIHAMA Juntaro.

It is hoped that many will attend these commemorative lectures.

Lecture titles:
"The World of the Ishihama Collection" by TANAKA Katsuhiko, professor emeritus at Hitotsubashi University
"The Ishihama Collection of Rubbings -- From Chinese Studies to Oriental Studies" by TSUTSUMI Kazuaki, associate professor at Graduate School of Letters, Osaka University
