We are delighted to announce that the annual Japan Foundation / BAJS Post-Graduate Workshop will be held on Wednesday 11th March, 2015.
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 workshop will include practical sessions by senior researchers. Topics for this year will be announced shortly, but last year we had sessions on ‘Field Work in Japan’ and ‘Publicising Your research’.
Date: 11th March, 2015
Time: 11am-6pm (to be followed by dinner reception)
Venue: University of Leeds
Call for Applications!
This workshop will also provide opportunities for a small number of participants to give a 15 minute presentation on their research and receive feedback from each other and senior colleagues. If you would like to present your research, please email Julie Anne Robb at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th February 2015 providing your name, institution, a title and a 500 word summary of your presentation. There will be a limited number of slots so early application is advised.
Eligibility: This workshop is 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 Julie Anne Robb at email@example.com to register your interest in attending or if you have any enquiries. The last event was over-subscribed so please get in touch as soon as possible if you would like to come along.
