Call for Applications: 15th EAJS Workshop for Doctoral Students
The European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) invites doctoral students in all humanities and social sciences to apply for the 15th EAJS Workshop for Doctoral Students (20–23 August 2019). The workshop will take place at the University College Cork. EAJS will cover the costs of travel (up to 400 EUR) and accommodation for the duration of the workshop for a group of 18-20 doctoral students and 4-5 senior scholars who will act as advisors.
The EAJS Workshops for Doctoral Students aim to create a European multidisciplinary network of advanced graduate students and senior scholars in Japanese Studies. The informal environment of the workshop provides a unique opportunity for participants to work together intensively to enhance individual projects and engage in in-depth discussions of common themes and methods. Through presentations and focused sessions, students give and receive critical feedback on dissertation projects, fieldwork plans and preliminary results. Students will be asked to read the work of their peers and prepare for workshop presentations linking their own work to the broader international Japanese Studies field. Students will also get extensive opportunity to discuss their projects with a senior scholar in their respective field.
