This noontime event will feature both a retrospective on Japan's earthquake/tsunami/nuclear meltdown and a forecast of where Japanese society is headed in coping with the catastrophe.  John Nelson has traveled and conducted fieldwork in the tsunami zone and will discuss the state of disaster relief efforts conducted by the Japanese government as well as by Buddhist and Christian organizations.  Steve Roddy will focus on Japan's anti-nuclear movement, the massive demonstrations of 2012, and the role of social media and traditional organizations to rally citizen support.  Please bring your lunch, have some cookies and coffee provided at the event, and join us for this discussion.

Co-sponsored by Theology and Religious Studies, Modern and Classical Languages, and Asian Studies.
