Eve Kushner on Kyle Ikeda, Okinawan literature, and kanji

Intern Intern - Monday, October 16, 2017

Japanese literature scholar Kyle Ikeda spoke this past Saturday about Okinawan literature and Shun Medoruma's In the Woods of Memory at the J-Sei community center in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

If you missed the event, Stone Bridge Press' very own Eve Kushner, author of Crazy for Kanji, blogged about Ikeda's lecture on translating Okinawan literature and the Okinawan dialect. She also delves into her forte: the kanji that popped up throughout the lecture. Thanks Eve!
