European Association for Japanese Studies

EAJS Workshops for Doctoral Candidates


The EAJS Workshops for Doctoral Students aim to create a European multidisciplinary network of advanced graduate students and senior scholars in Japan Studies. The informal environment of the workshop provides a unique opportunity for participants to work together intensively to enhance individual projects and engage in concentrated discussions of common themes and methods. Through presentations and focused sessions, doctoral candidates give and receive critical feedback on their dissertation proposals, fieldwork plans and preliminary results. The participating Ph.D. candidates will be asked to read the proposals of their peers and prepare for workshop presentations linking their own work to the broader international Japan Studies field.
