A Consolation prize and two supplementary prizes for a Japanese literature project
Huynh Thi My Dung, from Social Sciences and Humanities, has a love for the Japanese culture and literature and the works of Haruki Murakami. She developed a project entitled “The Art of Psychoanalysis of Haruki Murakami’s Characters in The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle”. My Dung researched the details of the author’s language and tone and developed statistics to classify the symbols he uses to express the culture and psychology of Murakami’s characters. As a result, she discovered that four of his characters, Toru Okada, Kumiko, the six-year-old Cinnamon, and the young soldier, all hear the call of the Wind-Up bird.
