A Postgraduate Symposium hosted by The Japanese Studies Centre, Monash University
With a Keynote by Professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki
9:00 – 5:30 Saturday 26th September, 2015
The Japanese Studies Centre is pleased to announce a call for papers for a postgraduate symposium at Monash University. The Centre is committed to mentoring future generations of Japanese Studies scholars and with this symposium, we hope to create a space for new and emerging scholars to meet and discuss exciting new research in Japanese Studies and cognate disciplines. In particular, by focusing upon “exploring Japan through new lenses,” this symposium not only hopes to contribute to the development of Japanese Studies as a discipline, but also to demonstrate how the study of Japan can challenge or extend ongoing theoretical, conceptual and/or methodological debates in a wide range of disciplines.
Postgraduate students currently engaging with Japan or Japanese Studies are invited to participate in this interdisciplinary symposium. Papers situated within any discipline and utilising any methodological/theoretical approach are welcome. The symposium explicitly seeks to engage with emerging theoretical and/or applied research which approaches the study of Japan through new and innovative paradigms. Submissions are welcome from postgraduate students at any stage of their degrees.
Postgraduate students interested in participating are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words by Friday 24th July via the following link http://tinyurl.com/JSCNewLenses. Please also include your name, institutional affiliation, enrolled degree, stage of enrolment and no more than three keywords or phrases with your abstract. Honours students are also invited to participate in the symposium as we will be holding a special session to showcase their work.
The symposium will be free to attend, and will feature a funded conference dinner for speakers. The organising committee gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Mitsubishi Corporation in funding this symposium.
The global opportunities with Arts at Monash
Chinese, Japanese & French languages graduate Sarah Holloway co-founded Matcha Maiden, a global e-commerce organic matcha powder supplier, and about a year ago started the physical venue Matcha Mylkbar in Melbourne, soon opening in Sydney. Sarah shares her experience making the most of Monash’s global exchange opportunities with her language studies and how this advantaged her in both her law career and current business. She says, ‘languages have really propelled my career and personal life. I can’t even describe the tangible benefits. It helps you in everything you do.’
