If you’re part of the GEL program or visiting HUEA an international student, you should stop by my office. There’s several good things that can happen when you visit my office:
- First off, I often have little treats lying around, and if you’re a good student or stop by unexpectedly I may offer you something to welcome you into my office.
- There’s an electric kettle so I can make piping hot tea, hot chocolate, and hot apple cider.
- I tend to have one or two board games in my office at any given time (right now Carcassonne and Dixit). We play sitting on the comfortable couch.
- There’s Japanese-language manga lying around (HUNTERxHUNTER, Full Metal Alchemist, etc.).
- There’s a world map where you can mark where you’re from or where you studied abroad.
There’s a good chance that I will be in my office. Sometimes, we do class in my office. Other times, I am in here researching or coding. My research is primarily in philosophy in either late modern philosophy (Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard) or early Confucianism. Somehow, I’ve also done a decent bit work on philosophy and childhood. More recently, I’ve also done a little bit of work more related to my work in CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning).
If you are visiting our campus, please stop on by.
