BAJS Conference

The latest BAJS Conference was held in September 2018 at the University of Sheffield on the theme of 'Crisis? What Crisis? Continuity, and Change in Japan'.

We do not organise a BAJS Conference in the years in which an EAJS or a JEAS Conference is organised. When there is no BAJS Conference, the BAJS AGM is held during the JEAS or EAJS Conferences or at a research workshop in the EAJS year.
