The British Association for Japanese Studies (BAJS) and the Japan Research Centre (JRC) at SOAS announce a Call for Papers for an Advanced Postgraduate Conference to be held at SOAS, London on Friday 25th April 2014.
This conference provides the opportunity for PhD students in any field of Japanese studies working within any academic institution internationally to present an academic conference paper, engage with other postgraduate students as well as established academics in the field, and meet key academic publishers.
Submissions are welcome as individual papers or panels. Individual papers will be grouped into thematic panels and assigned an established UK academic as Chair and Discussant. Panel submissions should organise around a key theme or field of Japanese studies and if possible indicate a Chair/Discussant.
This one day conference will comprise a morning plenary session (details above) followed by parallel sessions of postgraduate academic panels.
Abstract submissions (including full contact details and name of PhD supervisor and university institution) should be sent by 15 February 2014 to Dr Christopher Gerteis at SOAS: email@example.com
Participants will be responsible for organising their own travel and accommodation. Registration fees will be kept at nominal cost.
