We send our warmest congratulations and sincere thanks to Professor Ohno, and to her family.

Announcement: Postponement of IASIL Japan Conference 2020

Dear IASIL Japan members,

As with our International Conference, I am afraid we must now come to the sad but inevitable decision to postpone this year’s IASIL Japan conference, which was due to be held at Meiji University on 10-11 October, 2020.

The ongoing ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic: the travel restrictions, quarantine requirements, the uncertainty surrounding funding due to the disruption to the budget plans of grant-aiding bodies such as Culture Ireland, the increased workload in universities as they switch to online forms of teaching and administration, have made it impossible for our guests, Leontia Flynn and Matthew Campbell, to be able to travel to Japan in October.

Following a discussion with both Leontia Flynn and Professor Campbell, and with the conference organiser at Meiji University, Professor Naoko Toraiwa, we now plan to hold the postponed conference in October 2021, with these same guests, at the same venue, and with the same conference theme. I hope that the IASIL Japan members will understand the necessity for this disappointing decision, and will agree with the proposal, and very generous offer from Professor Toraiwa and Meiji University, to hold the postponed conference in 2021.

Best regards,
Andrew Fitzsimons, President, IASIL Japan

 

(Extended) Call for papers!

Because of the postponement of IASIL Japan 2020 Conference until October 2021, we are still accepting paper proposals. 

Applicants for a 20-minute paper reading are requested to send a synopsis of 250–300 words as a Word attachment to the IASIL Japan office at secretary[at]iasil.jp. * Besides the synopsis itself, please send details of affiliation, full postal and e-mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers by 31st May, 2021.                         * [at] = @

(b) Has a full and active affiliation with an academic institution as a postgraduate student.
(c) Has his/her conference paper accepted by the IASIL conference organisers.

4. The successful applicant will be awarded 50,000 yen for his/her travel expenses.
He/She will be asked to send the IASIL Japan office a report of his/her travel expenses and a photocopy of the receipt for his/her air ticket.

5. Applications and referee forms must both be sent to the secretary by 31 January 2020.
