The Call for Papers for the BAJS (Japan Chapter) spring mini-conference, to be held at Chiba University, 27-28 May 2017 is now available on the BAJS website.

The theme of the conference will be 'Critique of/in Japanese Studies: New challenges and new approaches' and seeks to bring papers from all researchers currently working on Japan-related topics. We particularly welcome those who are interested in at least one of the two following categories:

  • Critiques of Japanese Studies as a field of academic research,
  • Critiques of Japan as a subject of educational curricula and/or an object of media discourse or political discourse.
  • Critiques within specific Japanese Studies research areas, such as literature, history, politics, religion etc.

The keynote lecture on Saturday 27 May will be:

'A Moral Firestorm:' The Politics of Researching Controversial Manga in Japan and Beyond? by Patrick W. Galbraith (Duke University).
