As entrance restrictions to Japan remain strict, we have decided to shift to an online format after all. We initially postponed the conference to March 2022 with the hope to be able to meet in person in Tokyo, but the situation simply remains unclear. We are very sorry about this but hope for your understanding and active participation.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to October 31, 2021.
Please submit your abstracts (up to 350 words) to the following address: gjsss2021[at]outlook.jp
Within the framework of the Toshiba International Foundation Fellowship program conducted jointly by the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) and the Toshiba International Foundation (TIFO), the EAJS selects candidates for a fellowship to undertake research in Japan in 2021/22.
Applications are invited for TIFO Fellowships for a three-month stay in Japan which should begin no later than February 2022. Grantees can expect a fellowship of 7,000 EUR.
The TIFO Fellowship program aims at enabling Ph.D. candidates to pursue research in Japan for their ongoing Ph.D. projects. Applicants must be doctoral students by the time of applying as well as by the time of the scheduled research stay in Japan. They should be specializing in any field in Japanese Studies at a European institution. Applications by postdoctoral researchers cannot be accepted. Furthermore, only candidates pursuing their first Ph.D. degree are eligible to apply.
