Building networks, creating a high-quality collaborative research.

Purpose of the Workshop

This 10-day workshop is designed to provide young scholars who are expected to take the lead in future Japanese Studies to enhance their skills in conducting international collaborative research.
It initially focuses on the fundamental knowledge for building an academic career and expands to cover the skills for networking across fields of research. And on the last day of the workshop, participants give their panel presentations, which are expected to be well-organized and of a high-enough quality to be presented at international conferences.
This final presentation requires participants not only to deepen their understanding of their own research but also to find things in common with the research of others. Participants are therefore required to work actively with other participants, graduate students from universities all across Asia, lecturers, and guests of this workshop to broaden their viewpoints to other fields of research.
