dc.descriptionThis is one of hundreds of 60-second radio spots created by the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) for Kansas Public Radio (KPR). The purpose of this outreach program is to introduce the people of Kansas to the culture and current issues of East Asia.
dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: Usually our postcards talk about the lighter side of culture and events in China, Japan, Korea and Mongolia. Today's will be a departure from that. In light of recent events in Japan, we would do well to remember that earthquakes and tsunami are no strangers to this island nation. Structures have long been built to withstand earthquakes. Tsunami appear in art and literature: The Big Wave by Pearl Buck, for example, is about the effects of a tidal wave on a fishing village and one of the famous 36 Views of Mt. Fuji by Hokusai shows a wave with foamy grasping fingers at its apex. The nuclear meltdown adds another terrible dimension to an already devastating catastrophe. We at the Center would like to express our deep sadness and invite you to visit our website--www.ceas.ku.edu--for links to help you help Japan. #ceas #hacker #japan
