Submit a paper proposal to this section for the 14th EAJS International Conference


Griseldis Kirsch, SOAS, University of London, UK & Blai Guarné, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain


The newly established section 5b – Media Studies – would like to cordially invite researchers working in the field of Japanese media and popular culture to submit any proposal dealing with various media in Japan, stretching from audiovisual to print media and from manga to anime.

We would particularly encourage submission of thematically co-ordinated panels (consisting of 3 or 4 presenters with or without discussant), but individual submissions will also be considered.

Sessions will normally be 90 minutes long, leaving 15 to 20 minutes per paper plus 10 minutes of discussion per person.

Please direct all inquiries to the convenors to the section's email address.

Applicants may do a maximum of two separate submissions - provided that at least one of them is co-authored. This means a participant can submit up to one single authored abstract and one co-authored abstract (co-panelist counts as a single author) or two co-authored abstracts.

Abstracts and panel proposals should be submitted no later than November 30, 2013.

  • For individual papers, we kindly ask you to submit an abstract of not more than 1500 characters.
  •  For panels, please submit the title of the panel and an abstract of up to 1500 characters explaining the overall focus, together with a 300 word abstract from each participant. We also need you to identify a chair.
  • All proposals should be anonymous (i.e. the abstract should not include the author's name and affiliation, nor shall it be printed on the author's private or university letter head), but be accompanied by presenter name(s), institutional affiliation(s) and email address(es) to be entered into a separate form
  • Any audio-visual equipment requirements you might have need to be submitted together with your proposal.

Applicants will be informed of the results of their submissions by the end of January 2014. Accepted presenters will be asked to submit a short, one paragraph biographical statement.
