Call for papers

Applicants are encouraged to send proposals for individual presentations or group proposals (ideally 3 persons together) to collaborate on a panel. Papers related to the conference’s central topic “(Counter)influences” are particularly welcome, but papers on other aspects related to Japanese thought will also be considered. We encourage participants to approach the general topic in a creative way, keeping in mind that giving a presentation on a topic they are interested in is more important than adjusting the topic of the paper to the general theme.

We kindly inform all Applicants and Visitors that, due to the coronavirus epidemic, the Conference is postponed to 1–4 February 2022. The second application period opened with 7th September and closes with 15th October 2021.
