This conference is designed as an opportunity to reflect on the past, present and future of Japanese Studies in Australia.

The conference is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the teaching program in Japanese Studies at Monash University.

The conference will feature keynote presentations by alumni of Monash Japanese Studies and a series of research presentations by postgraduate students from universities around Australia. The presentations will be of interest to academic researchers, secondary and primary school teachers, policymakers and businesspeople engaged with Japan.
