After Lewis & Clark
Craig Colbeck ‘02 (East Asian Studies)
After graduating from Lewis and Clark with a bachelor’s
degree in East Asian Studies in 2002, Craig spent the next two years working in the JET Program—a Japanese-government initiative in language instruction and international relations. He was sent to Kitakyushu, a medium-sized city, where his job included translating public-relations materials and sister-city communications, interpreting, and visiting elementary schools and community centers to teach the public about the U.S.
Craig entered graduate school in the East Asian Languages & Civilizations department at Harvard University in 2004. Grad school took Craig to South Korea for language study as well as to Tokyo for a year of research. It took him a while, but in 2012 Craig finally got his Ph.D., and he now teaches East Asian studies and world history at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Chris Leong ‘06 (Foreign Languages: Japanese and Chinese)
Having studied Latin for six years in high school, Chris expressed interest in something completely different upon arrival at Lewis & Clark: Japanese and Chinese. He began in beginning level for both languages, studied during the summer, and spent a semester in both Osaka and Beijing. He graduated in 2006 conversant in both languages and is currently teaching on the JET program in Japan.
Jane Prideaux ‘06 (Foreign Languages: Japanese and Spanish)
Jane came to Lewis & Clark with exceptional Spanish skills from her time in Argentina, but began Japanese at the introductory level. She spent her junior year abroad in Japan at Kansai Gaidai University near Osaka.
Jane is currently working for the City of Portland as a Bilingual Information and Referral Specialist, assisting people in finding government and social services. She is also setting up a ceramics studio at her home and plan to pursue the art more seriously in the future. Studying in Japan greatly influenced her creative style and she hopes to return to both Japan and Argentina as soon as possible.
