Global Shikoku Internet Project



The Global Shikoku Internet Project is a local electronic text initiative coordinated by Kagawa Junior College Professor Steve McCarty. Steve has republished his research papers and parts of his edited books about Shikoku on the World Wide Web in English, Japanese, French and, with European collaboration, Spanish and Dutch. Translators for other languages are welcome to host versions at their own Websites. In this way people worldwide can learn about one traditional region of Japan while local people learn how to explain their culture to non-Japanese. Progress of the project is reported on this Web page. This Website has been linked from the Japan WWW Virtual Library at Stanford University. Project publications are listed below this photo of Ritsurin Park in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, Shikoku Island:
