A reminder about the summer fellowship in Japanese Arts and Cultural Heritage, which is accepting applications until 31 March.

Ishibashi Foundation Summer Fellowship at the UEA, 27 July - 19 August 2019

The Centre for Japanese Studies, University of East Anglia (UEA) in conjunction with UEA Summer Abroad invites applications for an intensive three-week postgraduate level Summer School in Japanese Arts and Cultural Heritage (27 July - 19 August 2019). 

With the support of the Ishibashi Foundation we offer full bursaries to all successful applicants accepted on to the course. The bursary covers tuition, accommodation, breakfast and lunch on working days, study trips and a contribution towards travel costs. Applications are invited from any country from advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students with a demonstrable interest in the field.   

The course will be taught in English. Classes will take place on the UEA campus, home to the renowned Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, and at the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures in the historic centre of the city of Norwich. Taught by leading specialists in the field, this Summer School offers an exceptional opportunity for students to develop an in-depth appreciation and understanding of Japanese arts and cultural heritage and their global impact. 

The closing date for applications is 31 March 2019

I would be very grateful if you could circulate this information as widely as possible to anyone who you think might benefit from the course. In particular, this is aimed at postgraduate and doctoral students with an interest in Japanese Studies.
