John Howes Japanese Studies Lecture Series @ Auditorium, Asian Centre,
Dec 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Translation, Transmission and Experiential Learning: Exploring traditional Japanese poetry

A lecture by Professor Laurel Rodd (University of Colorado)

Professor Rodd will explore aspects of traditional Japanese poetry as exemplified in the Kokinshu and Shinkokinshu, and link them to approaches to the transmission of and translation of poetry.  She will offer examples of the “experiential learning” of later travelers—ranging from Basho to her own students—as they sought  to understand poetry by returning to the scene of earlier compositions.
Free and open to the public. Pre-registration is appreciated.
Please arrive by 6pm if you would like to enjoy the reception with complimentary food and drinks.

Donwakai @ St. Regis Bar & Grill
Dec 18 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for the Donwakai!
The Donwakai is Mokuyokai’s monthly pub night of networking, laughter and fun that brings together those who have a shared interest in Japan-Canada relations. At the Donwakai, you will meet approximately 80 people who have a strong connection to Japan: teachers, travellers, students, business people and others from Canada, Japan and elsewhere. You don’t have to speak Japanese to attend this event, but you should have a strong interest in or connection to Japan. Most of our participants have lived or traveled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have Japanese-only table and one English-only table if you want to practice your language skills (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking). So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don’t miss this event! The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. Don’t forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.

This month’s Donwakai will be held at the St.Regis Bar & Grill located in downtown Vancouver at the corner of Granville and Dunsmuir.

They will have a number of drink specials for us as well as a wide array of food choices. For smooth ordering we recommend you pay by cash. An ATM is available on site.

In addition to the usual good company, conversations and networking this month will see the unveiling of Mokuyokai’s New & Improved Website!! Please join us for a fun evening with those who share an interest in Canada-Japan relations.

毎月第3木曜日に開いている集まりで、グラスを片手におしゃべりを楽しみたい人が誰でも自由に参加できます。事前申し込みは必要ありません。(注)前菜は 用意されていますが、自分でオーダーした食べ物・飲み物は各自で精算して下さい。
