2nd Japan Foundation / BAJS Post-Graduate Workshop

Thursday 10th January saw the return of our annual Post-Graduate Workshop, organised in collaboration with the British Association of Japanese Studies (BAJS).  Responding to feedback received following last year’s event, this year’s workshop gave participants the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from fellow PhD students and senior colleagues.  In all, six current PhD students presented their research -  Alice Freeman (University of Oxford), Anna Seabourne (University of Manchester), Mark Donoghue (University of the Arts, London), Nicolas Garvizu (University of Sheffield), Robert Horn (University of Sheffield), and Takahiro Yamamoto (London School of Economics).  Following these presentations, Prof Chris Hughes, President of BAJS, gave a training session on ‘looking for work, job applications and interviews’.  The day finished with a session on ‘funding your research’ which featured presentations by Susan Meehan (Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation), Stephen McEnally (Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation), Junichi Kumagai (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) and Prof Ian Neary (Japan Foundation Endowment Committee).  We would like to thank all participants for coming along and making the day a great success.  We hope to see you all again next year!
