Japan Foundation / BAJS Japanese Studies Postgraduate Workshop 2017: Make an Impact   org

We are delighted to announce that the annual Japan Foundation and British Association for Japanese Studies (BAJS) Postgraduate Workshop will be held in 2017 at the University of Sheffield.

This workshop aims to assist the development of the next generation of Japan specialists in the UK. It is a great opportunity to receive practical advice on your research from senior colleagues, and to get to know fellow postgraduate students and others in the Japanese Studies community.

This year’s interactive workshop will explore how emerging Japanese Studies researchers can increase the impact of their research on wider academia and society in the UK and Japan.

It will combine a series of presentations from senior colleagues on their own experience of conceiving, generating and recording the impact of their research with hands-on workshop sessions designed to allow participants to produce a skeleton statement of the potential impact and audience for their research, which can then be developed into a more formal impact statement for funding applications. In addition, there will be an opportunity to hear presentations from various agencies on potential sources of funding for current and future research.

Eligibility: This workshop is open to postgraduate students in Japanese Studies and those undertaking Japan related research in other disciplines. Priority registration will be given to PhD candidates. From 6th February 2017 registration will also be extended to Japanese Studies Masters students who are thinking about doing a PhD.

All participants will need to bring a wifi-enabled laptop or tablet with them to participate in the afternoon workshop sessions. Wifi access will be provided via eduroam.


Date: 24 February 2017 from 11.00am to 6.30pm
Venue:

University of Sheffield
