The Japanese Studies Program of the Ateneo de Manila University, Department
of International Studies of the De La Salle University, and
Third World Studies Center of the University of the Philippines

cordially invite everyone to the

*5th Biennial International Conference of the Japanese Studies Association
in Southeast Asia (JSA-ASEAN) *


15-16 December 2016

Radisson Blu Hotel

Cebu City, Philippines

This year’s theme is *“ASEAN and Japanese Studies: Futures and Critical
Approaches*.”  The year 2015 saw a series of events that would redirect and
transform Japanese society: the apparent failure of Abenomics, the
recurrent issue of Japan’s war responsibility at 70th Anniversary of end of
World War II, public debates and actions against the Peace and Security
Preservation Legislation, controversies about the preparation for the 2020
Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, the gradual reinstatement of nuclear power
generation, and the forceful implementation of the new Social Security and
Tax Number System. The government’s campaign of Cool Japan seems to have
lost its lure amidst the competition with the powerful cultural promotion
of South Korea and China in the international market of economic as well as
cultural commodities. Crucial cuts to humanities and social sciences at
universities will possibly engender the expansive and in-depth impact on
the future generation of Japan. At this crossroads, the conference invites
scholars of Japanese Studies, from the region and beyond, to examine the
past and the present of Japan, and explore the possibilities of its future.

As we are holding the conference in Cebu, we will implement a policy of
pre-registration for attendance with the following fees:

Registration Fee: P800 for two days or P500 for each day, inclusive of
snacks, lunch and a conference kit and a certificate of attendance.
(Students: P250 per day and P400 for two days)

Please see tentative program and reply form in this link:

There will be no registration on site.  However, there will be a
secretariat committee that will distribute the conference kits.
