Dispatching Diverse Results Unique to Tokyo University of Foreign Studies

◆Dispatching Diverse Results Unique to Tokyo University of Foreign Studies

Michiko Tanigawa,
Chief Examiner of the Preparatory Committee for Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press and Director of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Library


I am pleased to announce the founding of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press after a period of preparation that began last year. Based on the education and research fields of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies such as languages, area studies, and humanities, the newly established Press will offer society diverse education and research results obtained by the university, including original works of various themes for enlightenment, scholarly writings (including translations) in varied research fields, and language textbooks based on abundant educational experience.

Although the establishment of the Press comes at a time of severe publishing conditions, I keep in mind the words of Brecht: “In the contradiction lies the hope”; I believe that the Press, as a university organization that holds editorship, is willing and able to meet new challenges in the area of publication and is determined to provide well-selected ideas through publishing by pursuing careful bookmaking based on thorough planning and editing skills.

At the moment, we are making every effort in the editing process to start publication in March 2009. I greatly appreciate your support and cooperation of our publishing activities, which are aimed at sharing the university’s ample intellectual resources and the charm thereof with scores of people.

Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, in line with its basic objective of contributing to global co-existence through the pursuit of educational research on languages, cultures, and societies of various regions around the globe, will establish a publishing house based on the university’s Action Plan 2007, aimed at enhanced delivery of education and research results.

I believe that the world-level knowledge base and experience accumulated through the university’s over 110-year history will surely demonstrate considerable prowess in solving the various problems that global society is currently facing. As Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press sets out to sea, it will make use of the university’s abundant accumulated world knowledge to deliver the results of daily education and research to society at large, promote further education and research activities, and aim to spread knowledge that facilitates interaction with the global society.

In introducing the establishment of Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press, I greatly appreciate the support and cooperation of university personnel, graduates, and all other parties concerned.
