Gathered in just one room in Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS) are 61 students from GDUFS, Japan’s Ritsumeikan University, and South Korea’s Dongseo University. They are taking a summer class jointly provided by the three universities from July 28th to 31st, where two professors from each country teach the remote classes.
The “China-Japan-South Korea Distance Learning” course constitutes a substantial part of CAMPUS Asia (the Collective Action for Mobility Program of University in Asia). Since 2006, it has been acting as a high-quality platform for teachers and students to communicate on current social issues the history and culture of the three member countries during the summer and winter vacations. This July, Vice Professor Song Wuqiang of the Faculty of Japanese Language and Culture of GDUFS took his turn to provide an intriguing lecture on Guangdong merchants’ historical activities in Inchon, South Korea.
