    The Department of Asian Studies at Cornell University is pleased to announce the 2015 prize honoring the life and work of our colleague, Kyoko Selden. The prize will pay homage to the finest achievements in Japanese literature, thought, and society through the medium of translation. Kyoko Selden's translations and writings ranged widely across such realms as Japanese women writers, Japanese art and aesthetics, the atomic bomb experience, Ainu and Okinawan life and culture, historical and contemporary literature, poetry and prose, and early education (the Suzuki method). In the same spirit, the prize will recognize the breadth of Japanese writings, classical and contemporary. Collaborative translations are welcomed. In order to encourage classroom use and wide dissemination of the winning entries, prize-winning translations will be made freely available on the web. The winning translations will be published online at The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus<http://www.japanfocus.org/>.

    Submit three copies of a translation and one copy of the original printed text of an unpublished work (or a new translation of a previously published work) to the Kyoko Selden Memorial Translation Prize, Department of Asian Studies, 350 Rockefeller Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853. Please also send the submissions as e-mail attachments to seldenprize@cornell.edu. Repeat submissions are welcomed. The maximum length of a submission is 20,000 words. The translation should be accompanied by an introduction of up to 1,000 words. In case of translation of longer works, submit an excerpt of up to 20,000 words. The closing date for the prize competition is May 30, 2015. Awards will be announced on August 31, 2015. For the 2015 competition, one prize of $1,250 will be awarded in two different categories: 1) to an already published translator; 2) to an unpublished translator.

    4/30/2015The Tonda Traditional Japanese Bunraku Puppet Troupe writer The Tonda Traditional Japanese Bunraku Puppet Troupe by The Tonda Traditional Japanese Bunraku Puppet Troupe published by The Tonda Traditional Japanese Bunraku Puppet Troupe

    This summer the Tonda Traditional Japanese Bunraku Puppet Troupe is hosting a two-month summer program in the city of Nagahama in Shiga Prefecture near Kyoto, Japan. This non-credit program is low cost and is open to students of all academic backgrounds. The 170-year-old Tonda Puppet Troupe has been hosting puppetry training programs for international students since 1993.

    The summer program includes participation in local festivals and community activities and provides ample time for independent travel and exploration. Nagahama is located on the shore of Lake Biwa, just an hour by commuter train from Kyoto and only four miles from the castle city of Hikone. Students will live with nearby host families for the whole two-month period while they receive training in traditional Japanese puppetry (and shamisen instruction, if they wish).
    Previous knowledge of Japanese is helpful but not required. A full breakdown of price, dates, and activities is included in the application. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis. This year, the application is online, and can be found here:
