2014 Japan-America Student Conference

Initiated in 1934, the Japan-America Student Conference (JASC) is the oldest student-run exchange between Japan and the U.S. During this year’s 66th JASC, the American and Japanese delegates will be split up into seven different Roundtables, one of which is the Modern Consequences of Historical Education Roundtable. We will be exploring topics such as the controversial interment of Japanese Americans during World War II, the Japanese textbook controversy, and the Dokdo/Takeshima island dispute through in-depth discussions, field trips, and presentations. Moreover, JASC offers many professional networking opportunities and cultural exchange experiences.

Dates of the conference: July 30 - August 24, 2014

Des Moines, IA
San Francisco, CA
