Interview With Shigeo Kasuya

Written by

Noriko is Associate Professor of Japanese Language at Kalamazoo, where she teaches courses including Advanced Japanese and Japanese Language in Society. Sugimori is a sociolinguist, currently working on videotaping interviews with Japanese speaking people who were born in 1934 or earlier about their experiences during World War II. She and her students transcribe the videos in Japanese, then translate into English. Her collection of video taped oral histories will be the first bilingual project for the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer (OHMS), an open source tool from the Nunn Center at the University of Kentucky.
