The pandemic of 2019-20 continues to reshape our daily lives. In-person visits, public events, and academic research have all been hampered.  In response, Harvard has created a database which is a crowd-sourced digital resource commons created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and the shift to online event programming undertaken by institutions and programs worldwide.  UW Japan Studies Program events will be included when appropriate, and we hope to reach more people with our programming in this way.  “The database is intended to serve the international Japanese Studies community—students, scholars, institutes and institutions—by providing a virtual clearing house for information about the range and vibrancy of programmatic activities and research taking place about Japan.” says Stacie Matsumoto, Associate Director of the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies, Harvard University.
