Call for Presenters: Modern Japan History Workshop, Tokyo

Dear all,

My name is Joshua Rogers and I will be helping facilitate the Modern Japan History Workshop this academic year.

A year has passed since the last MJHW, but we are hoping to host two workshops this fall and several more in the spring. The workshops will be held at the University of Tokyo, Komaba Campus instead of Waseda as in the past.

For those unfamiliar with the workshop, it has provided a place for scholars researching in Japan to present on their work for the last twenty years. Please see the link below for a list of previous talks given at the MJHW.
