Anthropology of Japan in Japan (AJJ) 2023 Conference at Meiji Gakuin University Shirokane Campus, December 2-3

Subtitle: アレ!VAOJ@AJJ 2023...
Once again, the AJJ is meeting with a wide range of interesting participants, research topics and presentations. Of special note is a two panel first book launching of the forthcoming book, Teaching Japan: A Handbook (MHM Limited/Amsterdam University Press, forthcoming 2024). Many of the contributing authors will be presenting their individual chapters; one author will talk about teaching the visual anthropology of Japan. The conference will also award the inaugural Harumi Befu and Mark Bookman prizes for emerging scholars. And John McCreery will be giving the keynote address, “Is Japan Doomed? And Anthropology?” You can find details at the url below.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, our VAOJ guy was diagnosed with Corona and influenza. So he has had to pull out of the AJJ.
