【Call for Papers】First Japanese Research Showcase – Early-Career History Workshop
~Welcoming non-native Japanese speakers to present their research in Japanese~
At the Historians’ Workshop, we have been regularly organising Research Showcases since 2016 as an event where all presentation and Q&A sessions are conducted in a foreign language, providing a space for early-career researchers in history (postgraduate students, postdocs) to practice their scholarly communication skills.
Backed by popular demand, we’ll be hosting the first of such occasions in Japanese, aimed at Japan-based international students, Japanese and East Asian studies scholars from abroad, and other non-native Japanese speakers. Every presenter will be given 8 minutes to present their research and 7 minutes to receive questions, and, most importantly, receive written feedback on their Japanese presentation scripts beforehand from experienced presenters.
The workshop will take place across two days on 21 and 22 February 2022. We are excited to have Zahra Moharramipour (The University of Tokyo, art history in modern Japan) and Camila Torres Bianchini (Nara Women’s University, cultural history in modern Japan) as our commentators. The event will be organised by Moe Furukawa (The University of Tokyo, art history in renaissance and early-modern Italy) and Ryosuke Yokoe (The University of Tokyo, history of medicine in modern Britain), and is open to all disciplines, fields, and approaches that possesses a historical component, including Japanese and East Asian studies, intellectual history, social and economic history, cultural history, science and technology studies, art history, historical geography, and others. We welcome and encourage anyone who is interested in participating in a Japanese-language academic event in the future to apply to this workshop.
