Michiko N. Wilson Award

Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, in order to promote interest in Japanese culture and excellence in Japanese studies at UVA, the Department of East Asian Languages, Literatures and Cultures will launch a new prize competition for excellent translations of and critical essays about works of Japanese literature and Japan-US cultural relations. There will be one graduate prize and one undergraduate prize each year, each in the amount of $500. This is made possible by a generous gift from Aaron Nir (BA '87) and his wife, Satoko and is designated the Michiko N. Wilson Award to acknowledge and memorialize the forty years of Ms. Michiko N. Wilson's career at the University of Virginia as Professor of Modern Japanese Literature and Language.

The Department of East Asian Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the University of Virginia is home to an internationally recognized faculty whose research and teaching encompasses all historical periods of the region, as well as rigorous language instruction from elementary to advanced levels in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Tibetan.
