Learning Africa by walking through it -- relationship between the local history and the world history

2014-12-11 (Thu) 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

In this class open to the public, a student from Nagasaki Prefecture will make a presentation on what he learned and realized as he traveled, circling, under the theme of history, the African continent. The focus will be on whether the history of Africa and, although seemingly unrelated, the local history of Nagasaki share elements in common. He will also introduce the unique way in which he traveled, "overland tour," when in Africa. This class will give you a good opportunity to think about the history that you were never taught in school. How about thinking with us about learning history by traveling through a place far far away as you come to see your own place in history?

Note: Although this seminar is part of a course offered by GLOCOL, "Transcultural Study," this class is open to the public.

In concert with this class, a photo exhibition will be held from Monday, December 1 through Friday, December 12, 2014.
