     Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages, which recently took first place in the category of “world vision and foreign language proficiency” among all technological and vocational colleges and universities nationwide in the “2016 Best Universities/Colleges in Taiwan” survey by Cheers Magazine, has won a grant from Japan’s One Asia Foundation. Wenzao’s Department of Japanese is utilizing the grant to offer an international academic lecture series entitled “Language, Culture and Consumption in an Asian Community.” The university invited famous scholars from Taiwan and abroad to conduct the series with Asian languages, cultures, and consumerism as the theme.

 

     For the first lecture, which kicked off on March 9, professor Yuann, Jeu-Jenq from Department of Philosophy of Taiwan National University was invited to give a lecture on applied philosophy, and explained the subject of philosophy to students in a manner they could easily understand. This marvelous series of lectures, which Wenzao has created, not only provided an opportunity for students to form ties with top universities both in Taiwan and abroad in order to expand their horizons, but also furnished generous scholarships. This attracted 300 students to apply to take classes, of which 175 were ultimately chosen. In addition to famous Taiwanese scholars, visiting scholars from Japan’s National University of Tokyo, Meiji University, Ritsumeikan University, Korea’s Catholic University, and the University of California in the United States, and other schools were invited. Among them are Akiyoshi Higashiyama, the recipient of Japan’s Naoki Prize last year, and One Asia Foundation Chairman Yoji Sato, who will give lectures in Taiwan in May and June, respectively. A portion of the lectures will be conducted in English.

 

     Japan’s One Asia Foundation, which was founded in 2009, has committed itself to facilitating profound lectures in Asia. It encourages students to take the initiative in understanding Asia and having a profound awareness of its culture. Every year the foundation receives proposals from various schools and institutes in Asia, and offers courses related to cultural exchange within Asia. This year, Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages received a grant from the foundation for the first time.
