In December, 2020,
a Polish researcher and LinguaHiroshima’s co-editor, started her lectures on Peace Education as common graduate courses at Hiroshima University, one for a master’s and the other for a doctoral course. She gives online lectures in English and is ready to show our database system and contents of “Hiroshima and Nagasaki: A Multilingual Bibliography” to her students from various countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, besides some Japanese students.
Her lecture series will be a good example of how to introduce the multilingual database in a virtual classroom setting where students speak various languages with diverse social backgrounds. Her students will have hands-on experiences with the database searching for books available in their native languages.
Please see below for the details:
[The master’s course title] “World Peace and HIROSHIMA”.
[The doctoral course title] “Seeking Universal Peace”
Styczek takes up urgent issues in the international community such as poverty, famine, refugees, environmental problems, and conflicts taking place around the world. Students are expected to search for the clues to solving the problems from their fields of study.
For more than three decades, Styczek has done comparative research into Concentration Camp Literature in Auschwitz and Atomic Bomb Literature in Hiroshima. Students from Asian, African, and Middle Eastern countries may think of juxtaposing urgent issues caused by socio-political situations in their own countries and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
