Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to let you know that in his recent Autumn commencement 
speech, the president of the University of Tokyo not only made a clear 
and strong statement in the defense of humanistic studies, but cited the 
SAT project as an exemplary achievement in the humanities, which carries 
along with it an endorsement of DH. I think he makes it clear that 
humanities at UTokyo will not simply roll over and die at the whims of a 
philistine government. Please see:

Regards,

Chuck
