We are delighted to announce that the annual Japan Foundation / BAJS Post-Graduate Workshop will be held at the Japan Foundation, London on Thursday 6th February, 2014.
This workshop aims to assist the development of the next generation of Japanese specialists here in the UK, and to further strengthen the Japanese Studies community in this country. It is a great opportunity to receive some practical advice on your research from senior colleagues, and to get to know fellow post-graduate students and others in the Japanese Studies community.
This year’s workshop will include practical sessions delivered by senior academics on the following topics:
- Conducting research in Japan - Irena Hayter and Jamie Coates
- Navigating ‘Open Access’ and getting your work published - Caroline Rose and Helen Macnaughtan
Eligibility: Open to PhD candidates in Japanese Studies/Japan-related disciplines. Japanese Studies masters students who are thinking of doing a PhD are also welcome to attend.
Booking: E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest in attending or if you have any enquiries. The last event was over-subscribed with only 30 places available so please get in touch as soon as possible if you would like to come along.
**Please note, travel expenses of up to £40 will be available to all participants**
Call for Applications!
This workshop will also provide opportunities for a small number of participants to give a 15min presentation on their research and receive feedback from each other and senior colleagues. If you would like to present your research, please email Hal Parker at email@example.com by December 20th providing your name, institution, a title and 500 word summary of your presentation. There will be a limited number of slots so early application is advised.
