The planned conference, “Japan and the World,” will begin on Friday, November 10, 2006, with a keynote address, by Pulitzer-prize winner, John Dower, who will set the cross-national tone with “Cultures of War: Hiroshima, Nagasaki and 9-11.” The conference will run Saturday, November 11, in non-concurrent sessions. We are asking for paper proposals that fit into the broad themes of the conference outlined below:
Journalism and Media in Japan
People’s History of Japan
We hope to provide some assistance to young scholars for travel to the conference, depending on the success of pending grant applications. After the conference we hope to publish the papers in a special issue of a journal or as a book.
