No Steps Behind: A Refugee’s Battle for Women’s Rights

During the Spring of 2019 our advanced Japanese students in JA422 worked on a translation project. They translated “No Steps Behind: A Refugee’s Battle for Women’s Rights” written by Colby alumni Jeff Gottesfeld ’77. The story is about a woman, Beate Sirota Gordon, whose participation in writing the Japanese Constitution after World War II gave women a set of legal rights. Students included Artemis Qi (EA major), Boyu Fu (EA major), Yuta Murata (Japanese minor), Kelsi Liu (Japanese minor) and Zena Abulhab (Japanese minor). Kawashima sensei and Abe sensei helped students edit the book.


An Interactive Map of Prospect Garden

Students in EA 231, The Chinese Novel, create podcasts about characters and incidents in the 18th century novel Dream of the Red Chamber (红楼梦 also known as Story of the Stone). In the iteration of the course offered in Spring 2018, these podcasts were embedded into a map of “Prospect Garden” where many of the characters in the novel resided. Student authors: M Getgen ‘20, Alyssa Lang ‘18, Michael Li ‘19, Ryan Lolar ‘18, Shashank Mittal ‘21. Angie Peterson ‘18, Nicolas Ramirez ‘18, Ben Retik ‘20, Rachel Ryan ‘19, Neil Sefah ‘18, Patrick Sopko ‘20, Elizabeth Stevens ‘21, Ellie Wright ‘20, Ruyu Yang ‘21, Jennifer Ye ‘18
