I would love to do this myself — organized by Richard Chalfen.

ANNOUNCING: Summer Program on Japanese Visual Culture

For the fourth year, an exciting six-week Summer Program on Japanese Visual Culture will take place at the Tokyo Campus of Temple University Japan (TUJ), May 14 – June 29, 2007. This program consists of two coordinated courses: the first focusesn approaches to studying the richness and complexity of visual culture in Japan; the second allows students to develop odest visual projects (digital still, video or web) on elective topics immediately relevant to visual culture.
Instruction is in English. All course work will be supplemented with an active program of cultural events, trips
and lectures in and around Tokyo. Students live in Temple dormitories alongside Japanese students studying English at TUJ. This program grants course credits to both undergraduate and graduate students.
