Illuminating Japanese Studies: Lecture Series with Former Japan Foundation Fellows

Since the Japan Foundation Fellowship program started in 1972, there have been more than 1,000 American JF Fellowship recipients, who study a diverse range of research topics, from pre-modern history to pop culture and everything in between. In this online lecture series, fellowship alumni give presentations about their expertise within Japanese Studies. We hope that this series will illuminate what exactly Japanese Studies can teach us, not only about Japan but about the world.
