CALL FOR PAPERS
NAJS 2012 – The Ninth NAJS Conference on the Study of Contemporary
Japanese Society, 22–23 March 2012, Gothenburg, Sweden.
We would like to invite you to participate in the Ninth Annual NAJS
Conference. The NAJS is an interdisciplinary platform for research on
modern and contemporary Japan. The next conference will take place at
the School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg
The format of the NAJS conferences is intensive, collective, and
centred on discussion and feedback. In case your proposal is accepted
you are expected to submit your completed paper well before the start of
the conference. All papers will be made available to the other
participants through the NAJS website. The participants are supposed to
read all papers beforehand. Accordingly there will be no presentations,
apart from the keynote speeches. Two discussants will shortly comment on
each paper, the rest of the time being reserved for discussion. The NAJS
conferences have no particular theme for the conference, although at our
next conference we especially welcome papers related to the theme of
‘one year after the tsunami’.
The keynote speeches at the Gothenburg conference will be given by
Iwabuchi Kōichi (Waseda University), Sugita Yoneyuki (Osaka University)
and Taga Futoshi (Kansai University).
Registration forms and more information about the conference can be
found on the NAJS website (N.B. new url):
