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 31 August – 3 September 2021. Abstracts submitted until 31 May 2020 are going to be reviewed and Applicants are going to receive feedback by 31 July 2020. In Spring 2021, the organisers will announce a second application period. For updates, please visit the website later.
