JAPN 3111: Heian Newsletter

It's end of semester and I'm down to grading, grading and grading. And I have photographic proof! Here are students' submissions of their Heian Newsletters (group project): After reading a number of prose pieces in translation--Tosa nikki, Ise monogatari, Genji, etc.--they take that info as "facts" and create a newsletter reporting on happenings during the Heian period. Best article was a reflection by Michitsuna (Kenny Hoffman) after having read his own mother's diary (Kagero nikki) years later. Best advertisement was for fence repairs (Samuel Chan) to prevent "peeping"! (You know how those Heian guys are...)
