Japanese researcher
visits Elon University


Dr. Toshio Takeshita, a professor at Meiji University in Tokyo - one of the most prestigious universities in Japan - spent a day at the School of Communications Jan. 12.

He is a researcher in the field of agenda setting and is spending the 2003-2004 academic year in the United States, working in the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin.

He came to North Carolina to visit Dr. Don Shaw at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, and visited Elon to talk with Dr. Brad Hamm and meet other faculty members and international students. Takeshita said North Carolina is "the holy place for agenda-setting researchers. It's a pilgrimage."
