We conduct our studies of East Asian languages and literatures in the well-equipped study spaces of Lawrence Hall. Join us in our exploration of this fascinating discipline and its cultural assets.

The center is located in Lawrence Hall (campus map). It provides the department with a seminar room dedicated to the discipline, as well as a multipurpose room with a Japanese-style tatami section and Tokonoma.

The center includes computer and audiovisual resources that are complemented by a library of Japanese reference works, films, periodicals, and current newspapers for you to consult during your studies of Japanese language and culture.

Japan Club activities also are frequently held at the Japanese Studies Center.

It also includes a kitchen, audiovisual equipment, newspapers, journals, reference materials, and an expanding collection of books on China that you can use and reference during your studies.
