The Ca’ Foscari – Princeton Summer School in Classical Chinese and Classical Japanese/Kanbun is unique in its kind. It offers two tracks of comprehensive, grammar-focused instruction which are designed especially for students who wish to develop their linguistic expertise for graduate study in any discipline of premodern China or Japan.
Both tracks are taught by the principal instructors of the classical language programs at Ca’ Foscari and Princeton. In addition to 80 hours of class time, students will follow a lecture series on topics in premodern Chinese and Japanese culture (history, literature, thought). Both tracks welcome students who are beginners in Classical Chinese or Japanese, as well as those who already have some background foundation.
Dates: July 6 to 31 (4 weeks)
