Why is Reducing your Presumptions a Good Thing?

Yesterday I did a workshop at Hosei University in Tokyo on this very subject, and it went very well.


The students were engaged, thoughtful and articulate. I want to think the aministration at Hosei University, particularly, Mr. Okita, Mrs. Taji and Mr. Yanagawa to help organize this workshop and help it run smoothly. You guys are fabulous! And to the students, thank you all for helping this be the success that it was. You guys are the future!

Remember, when you encounter new people, what do you really know? Zero! 🙂

I think Hana will remember…she posted feedback on Instagram!

    Hi Loco!
    Just catching up with your blog after a long break )) Lot’s to read.

    Btw, I was listening to Chicago public radio (on http://www.thisamericanlife.org, may be you know it?) and the programm really reminded me of your work, so I thought you might find it interesting too. The topic was – the ways of telling children about race, death and sex. The second part entirely is about discussing racism with (very) young children. Sorry about the unasked for “osusume”, I just thought you might find it interesting!

    That’s so cool, you listen to it too! I’ve got hooked up on it recently, the This American Life radio I mean. I work long hours alone in front of PC, so it’s brilliant as a work companion (otherwise I might have gone feral long time ago, talking to myself and everything ;). It’s a shame you can’t read while you work, right?
    We have Radio 4 here in UK, discussing similar topics, but it’s nowhere near the level of reporting of This American Life. I actually can’t say that the issue of racism is that widely discussed here altogether. When the topic comes up, the talk is usually focused on muslim communities and Islam. UK’s colonial past is still on a hush hush side. Or so it seems at least.

    Keep up the great work! (and I’ll try keeping up reading it ))
