Lecture:Globalization and the Eastern Japan Earthquake Disaster
Guest Speaker:Toshiyuki Masamura - /Tohoku University Postgraduate Literature Research Professor

The mutual dependence of global scale, called "Globalization", that rapidly advanced after the second half of the 20th century. Now, you cannot discuss domestic and foreign domain without talking about politics, economics and culture. In the case of east Japan's earthquake disaster, Tohoku's factories recieved a blow and Fukushima had its nuclear power plant crisis, but this all had a global effect, and the reality of gobalization was even more so realized. On the other hand, much support and encouragement has come from overseas, the link betweent people and the ties between regions has been rediscovered, and the importance of community strength has been highlighted. We will consider how we should think and act in a world such as this.|
