【Photo Diary】 (6) Visit to Poland in the course of 4-nation tour [2022/06/14]
I would like to share with you some of the photographs taken during my four-nation tour that took me to Malaysia, East Timor, Switzerland and Poland from May 16 to 29, 2022.
[May 26, Kraków, Poland]
With Ms. Lily Klaudia Adamowicz, a 2016-17 fellow from Poland who studied at the Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies (IUC) in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, under The Nippon Foundation Fellows Program. This is a 10-month program for Ph.D. students in all fields of Japanese studies, targeting promising young scholars who exhibit a deep linguistic and cultural knowledge of the country.
With faculty members of Jagiellonian University in Kraków, the country’s oldest university established in 1364. For the last 35 years, the foundation has supported the university under the Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (Sylff) program for its MA and doctoral candidates. At left are Vice-Rector for Educational Affairs Professor Armen Edigarian and Professor Paweł Laidler, chairman of the Sylff steering committee. We explored the possibility of having Japanese student volunteers who are being sent to Poland to support displaced Ukrainians work alongside their peers at the university.
