The Department of Japanology of the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań and the Department of Japanese and Chinese Studies of the Jagiellonian University are organising an international academic conference Practicing Japan. 35 years of Japanese Studies in Poznań and Kraków, to be held on 24‒26 March 2022 remotely on the MS Teams platform.
The organisers invite prospective participants to discuss various aspects of getting to know and experiencing Japan, including experiencing the country indirectly (which is of particular importance in the context of the current Covid-19 pandemic) – in particular, through the effects of creative activity (literary, artistic, religious-philosophical, scientific), through the prism of language, history, politics, society, and law, as well as academic teaching. Four thematic sections (areas) have been planned:
- Literature, Theatre, Film and Art
- Language, Linguistics, Education
- History, Religion
- Law, Politics, Society
The abstract submission deadline is 31 January 2022.
