Japanese exhibition

The Library and Information Service hosted a Japanese exhibition in the Stellenbosch University Library. The exhibition, which ran from 8-20 August 2022, formed part of the launch of the Stellenbosch University Japan Centre (SUJC).

The SUJC has been established to enhance Japan-South Africa relations through i) promoting Japanese Studies at SU, ii) encouraging research and teaching collaboration in all fields of study, iii) hosting educational, cultural and in-person events for the broader community, and iv) engaging with external (e.g. Japanese business sector in SA) and continental stakeholders.

The Japanese exhibition included books on the art, economy, history, politics and social aspects of Japan. Some artefacts were also on display.
