The ANU Japan Institute was awarded an Australia-Japan Foundation grant for 2023-4. The award will be used to support delivery of a hybrid in-person/online seminar series that will attract cutting-edge research by leading and emerging scholars based primarily in Australia and Japan.

The project represents a commitment to consolidate, build and expand a network among Japanese Studies in Australia and Japan that is connected with global centers of Japanese studies in the Asia Pacific. The network will further strengthen the intellectual and cultural pillar of the Australia-Japan relationship to support development of the bilateral partnership into the future.

The seminar series will commence in March 2024, and will deepen an awareness of the Australia-Japan relationship by featuring speakers who will illustrate the depth of historical, political, economic, science-technology, and cultural relationship as well as charting new directions for the relationship into the future. It will also help to forge networks between scholars in Australia and Japan with their peers in the United States and internationally.

The series will be hosted by Dr Andrew Levidis and Professor Llewelyn Hughes. The Australia-Japan Foundation grant award announcement is available here

Further details – including registration details – will be announced in the coming weeks.
