Welcome to H-Japan, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online. H-Japan is an international, nonpartisan digital network. It provides scholars, graduate students and professionals a free daily forum to discuss Japanese history, culture, religion, and society, including contemporary political, diplomatic, security, and economic issues.
The Early Modern Japan Network was founded more than 20 years ago with the aim (among others) of promoting the presence of early modern Japan centered presentations at the AAS.
We have two mechanisms for doing this:
1) Sponsorship of panel proposals to the AAS. We have consistently encouraged early modern Japan specialists to take this approach first, since if the proposal is successful, it carries greater professional prestige, particularly important for our more junior colleagues.
