Japan Foundation/BAJS Japanese Studies Postgraduate Workshop 2020: Publishing Your Research   org

The Japan Foundation/BAJS Postgraduate Japanese Studies Workshop is returning for its 8th year and will be held at SOAS, University of London.

The theme for this year is ‘Publishing Your Research’ and will focus on helping participants navigate the world of academic publishing. Throughout the student-focused workshop, participants will be guided both leading scholars and those with insider knowledge of the academic publishing industry. The workshop also provides an excellent opportunity for networking among PhD students and academics, as well as a forum to discuss future collaborations. Organisations will also be presenting their funding programmes and giving details of how they can help.

Student Submissions:

Once registered, we ask students to send in a piece of work that they will be submitting for publication in the future. The work will be shared ahead of the event and feedback on submitted work will be provided by other students and academics throughout the morning session in small groups. If you are unable to submit a piece of work you can still participate in the event and provide feedback to other students. If you have any questions about this, please contact Mara Patessio at mp78@soas.ac.uk

Travel Grants:

The Japan Foundation is able to offer a partial travel grant of £70 per attendee after attendees have covered the first £20 of their fare. The British Association for Japanese Studies is able to offer £50 per attendee towards the cost of accommodation.

Registration:

Registration is free and the workshop is open to UK based PhD students who are undertaking research about Japan (including comparative) in humanities and social science subjects.

Should places still be available, registration will be extended to masters students on January 13th.

The final deadline for registration is January 21st.

Twenty-First Century Perspectives on Kazuo Ishiguro – an international conference   JPsupported

The early twenty-first-century presents us with a host of pressing contexts and challenges, from concerns about climate change and technological innovation to diversity issues and shifts in geopolitical power. To what extent does Ishiguro’s writing anticipate and comment on the early twenty-first century Zeitgeist? Surely, The Remains of the Day anticipates Brexit, Never Let Me Go argues against posthumanism, whilst The Buried Giant comments on our distracted, amnesic times. This conference invites critical and creative responses that connect Ishiguro’s work in new ways and/or situate it in new contexts.


Date: 1 February 2020 from 9.00am to 6.00pm
Venue:

Chancellor's Hall
City Campus
Wulfruna Street
