The Department of Japanese Studies in the School of Languages and Culturesat the University of Sydney in conjunction with the Oriental Society of Australia is inviting postgraduate students to present their research on war and postwar reconciliation at a forum in commemoration of the upcoming 70th year anniversary of the cessation of the Asia-Pacific conflict in August 2015.

For the purpose of a funding application due in December 2013, we must know the numbers of postgraduate attendees at this early stage.

Venue: Kansai Gaidai University, Osaka
Language: English and/or Japanese (Interpretation will be provided.)
Expression of Interest and/or Abstract Deadline:30 November 2013
Despite the receding of the Asia-Pacific War into the annals of history, its contemporary impact is still felt strongly and repercussions continue to be felt across politically and culturally boundaries of Pacific basin countries. Controversies surrounding the atom-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Ianfu (comfort women), Japan’s mistreatment of prisoners of warand the Japanese history textbook disputation continue to be relevant in today’s globalized post-colonial zeitgeist. In this context, it is important to maintainan ongoing discussion of postwar reconciliation, so that the ignorance and negligence of war-related issues and experiences can be avoided in the minds of generations to come.This forum invests in young researchers to come up with revitalising perspectives that contributes to the strengthening of cross-cultural friendships and international relations. We invite speakers from a diverse range of topics.
Travel grants or a scholarship may become available for participants.

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.
