CULCON Report on Japanese Studies at Colleges and Universities in the United States in the Mid-70s.
Massey, Elizabeth T.; Massey, Joseph A.
The purpose of this report was to determine the changes that occurred from 1972 to 1976 in the field of Japanese study in the United States. The investigators compiled information from already published material and obtained data from questionnaires that were sent to all colleges and universities known to employ at least one specialist on Japan in the academic year 1976-77. The information is presented in five components: (1) teaching and training, i.e., the distribution by discipline of faculty specialists, courses and enrollment in Japanese study, study in the disciplinary courses, studying done in Japan, and Japanese study at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional school level; (2) individual and collaborative post-doctoral research and other publications; (3) service to the community beyond university walls; (4) American college and university library facilities; and (5) financial resources. The report is constructed wholly of quantitative evidence. The appendices, containing text and detailed tables, summarize the major points. (Author/PJM)
