Tansei 19: The World and UTokyo

Museography ©UMUT works 2013-
Welcome to the 19th issue of the English edition of Tansei. In this issue, we look at how the University is connected to the international community through a feature themed “The World and UTokyo.” In this special feature, we introduce 14 graduates of the University who excel in areas such as the arts, humanities, sciences, business, academic research, and policymaking all across the globe. In the opening pages of this issue, you will find an article belonging to Tansei’s familiar discussion series. For this edition, we invited Professor Masashi Haneda, who works on the internationalization of the University as the executive in charge of international affairs, and Professor Takehiko Kariya from the University of Oxford. They discuss the value the University of Tokyo brings to today’s global society. In the middle pages of the issue, we report on the President’s Council meeting held in November 2016 and then introduce two female researchers, one conducting research into the applications of microalgae and the other engaged in ocean floor geosciences, as a part of the “Invitation to Science” series. In the closing pages, our “Campus Walk” section introduces the Ecohydrology Research Institute, which is located amid the richly vegetated hills of eastern Owari in Aichi Prefecture.

The cover of this edition of Tansei features a large globe that is housed at Intermediatheque (IMT), a public facility jointly operated by Japan Post Co., Ltd. and the University Museum of the University of Tokyo. The globe, which has been moved from the University’s library in Hongo to the museum in Koishikawa and then to Marunouchi, exceeds 2 meters in height and is a testament to the history of academic exchange between Belgium and Japan.

About Tansei

Tansei is the magazine of the University of Tokyo. The school color of the University of Tokyo is light blue (tansei in Japanese). It was first used in a rowing regatta between the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University in 1920. The choice of light blue or dark blue was decided by drawing lots. Kyoto drew dark blue and Tokyo light blue, and these have been the two universities' respective colors ever since.
