Since the 1970s, the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) has organised academic conferences at various European universities every three years. EAJS also started to organise a conference in Japan within the triennial schedule with the inaugural conference at Kyoto University in 2013 and the second EAJS Japan Conference at Kobe University in 2016.

The 3rd EAJS Japan Conference is to be held at the University of Tsukuba in Sept. 2019, with the cooperation of the University of Tsukuba as the local conference host and organiser.

  • The EAJS accepts proposals for papers and panels from doctoral students up to established scholars. Although the conference is thematically open, we especially encourage submissions with new topics and approaches and/or adopt a fresh theoretical or methodological approach towards established research subjects.
  • The EAJS considers the promotion of early career scholars as one of its most important tasks. Therefore, we specifically encourage younger scholars working on their dissertation or in their early postdoc phase to apply.
  • Divided into several two-hour sessions, every paper presentation will usually last up to 20 minutes with about 15 minutes for Q&A; about 2 hours will be assigned to a panel.

Please note:

  • The main language of academic communication is English. However, Japanese is accepted for presentations, if an English summary is provided.
  • All accepted presenters must be paid-up EAJS members.
  • Please note that presenters and participants are responsible for making their travel to and accommodation arrangements in Tsukuba by themselves.
