On April 29,“Human Library in Forest” was held for the first time at Lions’ Lake at the ERICA Campus. In the library, a special guest becomes a “Human Book.” With this intention, the Human Library project seeks to promote communication with students through a two-way dialogue.
Under the theme, “Book, mother tongue and simultaneous interpretation,” Lee Tae-hyung, a conference interpreter and Professor Department of the English Culture and Literature at Hanyang University, participated as the first “Human book.” With 15 Hanyangians, he shared his experience and information about his job, answering the participants’ questions. Han Yu-jin, a Junior in the Major of Anthropology, said, “I was satisfied with the content of the lecture and dialog we had. I would like to participate in this kind of lecture more regularly.”
The ERICA Library has no specific future date to hold a second Human Library event but they plan to hold at least three more this year. “Hanyangians can apply for the upcoming programs when the notice is posted in the Internet cafe of the ERICA Library.”
