Japanese Studies in a global context: The art of friendship
30 Nov - 2 Dec 2017, Neill Theatre, Trinity Long Room Hub
Contemporary Japanese Studies is a multi-faceted area crossing the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. This international symposium, co-organised by Osaka University and Trinity College Dublin, seeks to open up the field within a comparative, international perspective with an aim to foster closer relationships between Japanese and Irish researchers of Japan. The date of this symposium marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Ireland – an auspicious opportunity to mark and celebrate the art of friendship as exemplified through the work of scholars working in these fields in both countries.
