Denver-based Consul General of Japan to speak at BYU Jan. 12

Yuzo Ota, consul general of Japan in Denver, will present an Asian Studies lecture on Japanese foreign policy Friday, Jan. 12, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

Yuzo was appointed to the Denver office in March 2004, where he serves Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. His previous work has included appointments at consulates in Los Angeles and New York; in embassies in Tanzania, New Zealand and Bangladesh; with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tokyo; and as chamberlain to the Crown Price in Japan.

Yuzo’s recent publications include “A Woman With Demons: The Life of Kamiya Mieko,” an intimate portrait of a Japanese woman that overturns stereotypes.

The lecture will be archived online. For more information on events at BYU’s David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
