Meeting with Prof. Mitsunari Miho (Nara Women’s University, Japan)

On March 2nd, 2018, USSH’s Vice Rector Hoang Anh Tuan welcomed and worked with Prof. Mitsunari Miho (Vice President of Nara Women’s University) to discuss about the prospects for cooperation between the two universities. Prof. Mitsunari currently teaches about “Gender Studies in Japan” at USSH’s Faculty of Oriental Studies for the academic year 2017-2018, under the framework of the project “Specialized lectures on Japanese studies” sponsored by the Japan Foundation Center for Cultural Exchange since 2006.

At the meeting, Assoc. Prof. Dr Hoang Anh Tuan thanked Prof. Mitsunari Miho and her colleagues for their efforts at teaching the USSH’s students majoring Japanese Studies and contributing to the development of this major.

He shared that for a decade, the Division of Japanese Studies had strived to become one of the prestigious institutions in Vietnam that teaches this major and provided professional suggestions to the leading Vietnamese authorities concerning Japan. The Division now has abundant and diverse teaching materials and regularly holds conferences, research projects and published annual monographs on Japan. Based on the specialized lectures on Gender given by the Japanese experts, USSH would hope to compile and publish corresponding monographs. In addition, Japanese and Vietnamese experts can start to discuss about comparative Gender studies.

Prof. Mitsunari Miho expressed her gratitude for being warmly welcomed by USSH. She also shared about her research on “Gender from the Asian perspective” and said the two universities could cooperate to finish this project.
