CJS 75 Time Capsule Workshop

Bradly Hammond, CJS Alumnus
Monday, March 27, 2023
4:00-5:30 PM
Room 2239 Lane Hall Map
Join us on Monday, March 27 for a workshop led by CJS alumnus Bradly Hammond!

This year, the University of Michigan Center for Japanese Studies (CJS) marks its 75th anniversary. Every CJS anniversary has generated commemorative books, brochures, and videos that spotlight the center’s past while staking out new horizons for its work. Although not necessarily intended as such by the small groups of faculty and staff who made them, we can think of these items as time capsules of CJS’s self-image and ambitions at different points in its history.

This workshop invites participants to reflect on those past time capsules, and also to make an intentional time capsule to mark CJS’s 75th year. Guided by curricula created by the Detroit Justice Center for its Restorative Justice Youth Design Summit, we will discuss and record our thoughts about such questions as:

What is the purpose or intent of a Center for Japanese Studies?
What does a generative and ethical Center for Japanese Studies look like?
How do you think CJS ought to be investing its resources 75 years from now?

Refreshments will be provided. Registration for this event is required as space is limited. Please RSVP at and contact us at with any questions.
