Message from Prof. Yoshimi：
During my stay at Harvard, I taught two courses both in the graduate and the
undergraduate program; “Japanese Media Studies” as the graduate course and
“America in Japan” as the undergraduate course. Throughout this experience,
I have learned a lot of important elements implemented in the “Harvard
System” from inside. In this short talk, I’m going to explain some of the
findings from my personal experience. I already wrote this in my recent
book 『トランプのアメリカに住む』（岩波新書）, especially in Ch.3. So I
recommend you to read the chapter before joining this workshop.
