Call for Papers
The Sixth Biennial International Conference of the Israeli Association for Japanese Studies
A Celebration Marking the 70th Anniversary of Israel-Japan Diplomatic Relations
The Sixth biennial international conference of the Israeli Association of Japanese Studies will convene at The University of Haifa, Israel, November 15-17, 2022.
We invite proposals of original research papers. We are seeking submissions of Japan focused papers, from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, including but not limited to political science, anthropology, economics, cultural studies, international relations, urban studies, literature and art. We welcome proposals for Organized Panels, Roundtables, and Individual Papers. Priority will be given to organized sessions. Advanced doctoral students are also invited to apply.
It is our hope that this conference will take place physically at the University of Haifa. However, given current conditions, it is not possible to guarantee that this will be the case, or that all the participants will be able to attend the conference as planned. We are therefore preparing for the possibility of transmitting some of the lectures virtually.
Language of the conference: English.
Proposals for panels as well as individual papers should be sent to IAJS secretariat (email@example.com) by September 1st, 2022. Acceptance letters will be sent out by September 30th, 2022.
Successful applicants should have a valid membership with the Israeli Association of Japanese Studies. For registration and payment please go to: https://wwww.japan-studies.org/registration/ (
