Following one day of closed door discussion, experts will engage with interested audience on the morning of Friday October 27 to present their most recent findings.

Ecologies of Knowledge and Practice - Japanese Studies and the Environmental Humanities   JPsupported

How does research on Japan inform ecological practice that is pertinent beyond the framework of area studies, and vice versa? If we were to place nature at the core of our studies of human activities, what new kinds of interdisciplinarity and knowledge would be possible, and how would we reorganize our academic disciplines?

This workshop invites individual papers from UK-based Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers within the Humanities for an inter-disciplinary discussion with guidance from established scholars and practitioners.

Deadline for Abstracts: 31 August 2017


Date: 27 October 2017 - 28 October 2017
Venue:

St Antony's College, University of Oxford

Japan Foundation at Experience Japan Exhibition 2017   JPsupported

The Experience Japan Exhibition will be back in London this November for the seventh time, bringing information on the growing range of exciting study and research opportunities available in Japan to a UK audience. 

The event which is hosted by Keio University and co-hosted by the British Council will allow participants to meet representatives of Japanese universities and receive information on the various programmes of study offered for international students. There will also be a chance to find out about the variety of scholarships and research funding available to enable students to take advantage of these learning opportunities.

The seminar line-up offers participants the chance to learn about the basics of life in Japan and hear directly from people with experience of studying and researching there. Guest speakers will also be delivering presentations that provide insights into Japanese language and a new field of sports known as "superhuman sports". There will also be a special seminar on the ever-popular Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme.

This year’s seminar line-up also includes a talk by the Japan Foundation’s own Chief Japanese Language Advisor Makoto Netsu who will be discussing ‘Insights into Japanese culture through language’.

Throughout the day the Japan Foundation will also be introducing our support programmes and resources for Japanese Studies and Japanese language learning at an information stand at the exhibition, so do come and visit us for advice on your Japanese studies!
