invites everyone to


2012 International Conference
MIGRATION AND CREATION OF MULTI-CULTURAL SOCIETY OF JAPAN:
WORKERS, WOMEN AND THE NEXT GENERATION

27 - 28 January 2012, Ricardo Leong Hall Auditorium
Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, Quezon City


Under globalization, migration is no longer a peculiar topic of  
academic inquiry but an indispensable part of the social sciences.   
This two-day conference aims to approach this theme from various  
viewpoints. It will be composed of three parts: the history of  
Japanese out-migration; the socio-economic issues of contemporary  
in-migration to Japan in the context of internationalism and the aging  
society; and the multi-cultural society of Japan. It attempts to  
scrutinize the politics of population mobility from and to Japan, and  
explore the possibility of a multi-cultural society in and of Japan,  
which would encompass diverse definitions of ?Japanese? and spaces  
that embrace people with different ethnic backgrounds.

International speakers who will attend this year include: Dr. Aurora  
Javate-de Dios (Miriam College), Prof. Angelo Ishi (Musashi  
University), Dr. Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu (Stanford University), Dr.  
Soo Im Lee (Ryukoku University), Prof. Shun Ohno (Kyushu University),  
Dr. Priscilla Grille (Nanyang Technological University), Prof. Habtamu  
Alebachew Simesh (Mekelle University), and Prof. Mamta Sachan Kumar  
(National University of Singapore). Some sessions will allow young  
Filipino researchers in the field to present their most recent works.  
It is hoped that this line up of presentations by seasoned and new, as  
well as international and local scholars, will stimulate vibrant  
discussions on various topics and approaches in the field of migration  
studies, which is increasingly significant in this era of  
globalization, and help create new networks among major institutions  
related to Japanese studies.
