Call for Papers

2012 International Conference on Japanese Studies

27 and 28 January 2012
Ateneo de Manila University

The conference aims to provide a lively forum for academics, scholars,  
educators, and professionals who are interested in issues of migration  
relating to Japan, and enable the exchange of new and various  
approaches and perspectives in an informal interdisciplinary setting.

We are now accepting abstracts (300-500 words) for papers looking at   
in- and out-migration and multiculturalism in Japan.  We particularly  
encourage critical studies in the following areas:

1.  Migrations in Japanese History
2.  Political, economic, and societal contexts of contemporary  
migration to and
       from Japan
3.  Gender and Migration
4.  The Nikkeijin and Return Migration
5.  Bi-cultural Families and the Creation of New Ethnicities
6.  Japan?s multicultural society as an offshoot of migration to Japan
7.  Multiculturalism as a framework in looking at contemporary  
Japanese society

Other related topics are also welcome. Please email abstracts to  
jspadmu at gmail.com on or before 14 October 2011.
All submissions will be refereed.
