Possible invitation to Osaka (Japanese health insurance 1920s-present)

[Reply directly to Dr. Sugita -- ed.]

Dear Colleagues:

I would like to apply for funding to invite scholars outside Japan who are working on Japanese health insurance from the 1920s up to the present. Any methodology/discipline would be considered. Successful candidates will be invited to Osaka University (Osaka, Japan) for a week or so before the end of this school year (before 31 March 2015) to hold seminars, lectures, and possibly symposium in Osaka.
