This initiative is designed to connect Japan scholars from the U.S., Southeast Asia, and Japan in order to enhance their collective scholarship through collaborative projects and exchanges, as well as to advance Japanese Studies in these three regions. The Japan Foundation hopes that Japan scholars and students from all three regions and across many disciplines will benefit mutually from the creation of scholarly networks and the sharing of Japanese Studies resources, research methodology, and practical collaborative work. Projects will be based at U.S. institutions with strong existing or developing Japanese Studies programs, in order to share the wealth of Japanese Studies resources present in the U.S., and to establish and/or strengthen connections with individuals and institutions in Southeast Asia and Japan.
