Call for Applications: Exchange Program for Regional Integration in East Asia and Europe (EPRIE) 2013
Invitation to recommend a candidate for the Exchange Program for Regional Integration in East Asia and Europe (EPRIE) 2013 September 19 to 30, in South Korea and Japan.
After the successful initiation of the Exchange Program for Regional Integration in East Asia and Europe (EPRIE) in Europe in 2012, it was decided to continue the program in 2013. The next EPRIE, titled “Challenges for Neighborly Cooperation” will be held from 19 to 30 September 2013 in South Korea and Japan. The goal is to activate a transnational dialogue through a comparison of the situations of historically burdened neighbors in Europe (Germany with Poland and France) and East Asia (Japan and South Korea). Harmonization activities through cultural exchange will be a special focus of the seminar. A topic of discussion will be, for example, whether phenomena such as pop-culture play a relevant role for mutual understanding or for the creation of a regional identity. Taking into account the currently very tense situation in East Asia, the role of the U.S. and EU in the security policy architecture will be considered. Experts from the scientific, political, economic and civil society will introduce their perspectives and discuss them with the participants. In addition to gaining specialized knowledge through comprehensive content, participants will develop intercultural competences and make international contacts. Through intensive dialogue in international groups, the seminar will encourage participants to get acquainted with each other and to build an enduring network to facilitate long-lasting cooperation.
We would like to invite you to recommend suitable candidates for this program. Candidates should have special interest in the topic, be between 20 and 30 years old, and be of German, French, Polish, Japanese or Korean nationality. Because English will be the language of the program, they are expected to speak English fluently.
The organizer of the program is the Korea Association (Korea Verband e.V.), a politically independent association in Berlin, in cooperation with the Robert Bosch Stiftung, a private German foundation engaged in international understanding and the Northeast Asian History Foundation. Additional support will be given by the Goethe-Institute in Seoul, the German Embassy in Seoul and Tokyo, the Japan office of Friedrich-Ebert Foundation in Tokyo, and the Delegation of the European Union to Japan.
All participant expenses during the program (hotel, meals, transfer) will be covered. However, participants are expected to cover the costs for their journey from their home destination to the conference location in Wonju, South Korea, and back from Tokyo, Japan themselves. Do keep their travel expenenses low it would be great if you know suitable candidates, who will be in Japan or in Korea this autumn.

NCC Online Guide to English-Language Publishing for Japanese Scholars
Call for Suggestions
| || |
The North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC), a clearinghouse for Japanese information resources, is developing an online guide to English-language publishing for Japanese scholars trained in and currently teaching and conducting research in Japan.
The guide, which will be available in Japanese on the NCC website, will explain the differences in the publishing climates of Japan and Anglophone countries; outline the expectations of editors and publishers; and detail the publishing process, from researching potential publishers and making contact to final publication, for four key venues—professional journals, edited volumes, monographs, and online journals. Practical resources will include downloadable templates for inquiry letters to publishers as well as advice on how to write an abstract.
The first edition will cover humanities and social science disciplines; future editions may be developed for other subject areas. Professors Keiko Ikeda of Doshisha University and Jordan Sand of Georgetown University are the project’s executive editors.
Akiko Yamagata, Project Editor.
