Japan Foundation°«s Roundtable at AAS Annual Conference: °»Current Situation and Agendas of Japanese Studies in Global Perspective: Japan in the Age of Asia°…

September 27, 2011

A roundtable was organized for the 2011 AAS Annual Conference with invited panelists from four Asian countries to present and discuss the current situation of Japanese Studies in each country. At the Global Japanese Studies Scholars Forum held in 2009 which brought together sixteen scholars from twelve countries to survey and compare the state of Japanese Studies around different regions, one of the key issues brought to attention was the need for a worldwide network of Japan specialists that connects Europe, the US, and Asia. In this context, the Japan Foundation has utilized the opportunity afforded by the annual AAS conference and in conjunction with ICAS, by inviting prominent scholars from Japan and other Asian countries to the conference to participate in discussion on the current state and agendas of Japanese Studies from a global perspective, in hopes of further promoting Japanese Studies and worldwide network of scholars in the field.

Moderated by: Dr.Takashi Terada, Professor of Institute of Asian Studies, Waseda University
