Recently Launched: Japanese Studies Events Database

Hannah Perry's picture

The Japanese Studies Events Database is a crowd-sourced digital resource commons created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to online event programming undertaken by universities and institutions worldwide.


The database is intended to serve the international Japanese Studies community by providing a virtual clearinghouse for information about the range and vibrancy of programmatic activities and research taking place about Japan. There are so many wonderful things—lectures, webinars, online workshops and panels—taking place at universities and other institutions around the globe. The hope is that the database will further deepen connections and foster collaboration within the larger community, particularly during these difficult times when holding in-person events is more challenging.


We welcome universities, research centers, academic departments and programs, and scholars to share Japan-related programming on this database. If you wish to post an event, please contact for the Google Form link and password. Upon completion of the form, you will receive an auto-reply confirming submission of the Google Form. This email can be referenced for subsequent edits as needed.
