A night of culinary cultural exchange 🍜
This Wednesday, our third semester Japanese Studies students brought the magic of cultural exchange to life with a wonderful cooking event! 🇯🇵
The students invited current exchange students from Japan, as well as their professors and assistant teachers.
The participants formed groups to try their hand at making delicious dishes, blending Japanese and Danish flavors for an evening of party games and activities.
A heartfelt thank you to our student organizers and everyone who joined the culinary adventure🌏

GlobalStudies.dk is designed as an interactive and creative digital meeting place for students and staff of all areas and across all academic levels. It includes digital resources feeding into the teaching and new projects and is primarily run by students and department staff.
This site includes sections from the fields or internships around the globe, blogs, a thesis bank showcasing talent, success stories, event news and much, much more.
This common digital platform aims to help overcome existing area boundaries between study programmes, assist students in locating themselves in the wider department, serve as a useful guide to future students as well as maintain ties amongst former students. Through this website, we also strive to make our Global Studies Department work available to wider audiences.
Our community of ‘globalities’ stretches beyond Aarhus and Denmark and includes alumni and partners elsewhere.
