Kansai University has over 700 researchers, many of whom are engaged in unique international activities. To share information of such activities with a wide range of people inside and outside the university, we publish here the online Casebooks of International Activities at Kansai University.
The 11th casebook showcases the activity of Professor Katsuhiko Kitagawa in the Faculty of Economics: International Symposiums for Asian and African Regional Studies and the Kansai University Asian and African Studies Group (AASG). The International Symposium for Asian and African Regional Studies, one of the main features of this casebook, was first held in South Africa in 2013, followed by the second held at Doshisha University, and the third and fourth held at Kansai University. Among the key figures at this international symposium is Professor Kitagawa of the Faculty of Economics, who has been involved in the symposium since it was first held.
We will continue sharing information of unique activities at Kansai University, to show that “Kandai has many human treasures.” Keep checking here for more.
