Integration of Humanities with Sciences: New Logistics understanding Human Adaptations in Northeast Asia

Information

Four workshops under the thematic program “Geologic Stabilization and Human Adaptations in Northeast Asia (2018–2019)”, sponsored by the Tohoku Forum for Creativity (TFC), achieved a big success and reached the consensus to keep on the efforts for integrating humanities with sciences. As a follow-up from past workshops, we will run a short workshop on integration of humanities with sciences. This short workshop focuses into discussing new logistics to understand human adaptations in Eurasia, including Northeast Asia. Invited speakers have been working on different aspects of interdisciplinary studies combining humanities with science. Their expertise and past accomplishment are most important for the success of this workshop. This short workshop also aims to provide opportunities for educating young generation.
