Call for themes for the Society for the Study of Japonisme International Symposium 2020
The Society for the Study of Japonisme, in the quest to enrich and enlarge the content of the Hatakeyama Symposium of 2018 (the eighth edition), organized and held the newly-titled "the Society for the Study of Japonisme International Symposium" on 5 October, 2019. The Organizing Committee, in wanting to maintain this trajectory, hereupon makes a call among the members of the Society for themes pertinent to the 2020 version of the International Symposium, to be held at the National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo, and featuring simultaneous interpretation. We encourage all of the members to peruse the following project plan and encourage applications with a succinct new theme.
Project Plan for the Society for the Study of Japonisme International Symposium 2020
Organizers: Society for the Study of Japonisme/ National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
Co-organizer: Ebara Hatakeyama Memorial Foundation
Date: 10 October, 2020

Following the great success of the inaugural International Symposium of the Society for the Study of Japonisme, held 2019 at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo – with simultaneous interpretation courtesy of the cooperation of the Ebara Hatakeyama Memorial Foundation – we have decided to organize a further instalment for 2020.
We will publish the contents, abstracts and conclusions on our homepage and in a forthcoming volume of Study of Japonisme.
Presenters of paper will accordingly be allowed sufficient time to suitably draft and shape their papers, following referee assessments on our proceedings, enabling them to be suitably fit for publication in two languages, namely in Japanese and English. Presenters/ authors should declare, in their acknowledgements, whether or not their paper has been modified following the International Symposium 2020 Society for the Study of Japonisme International Symposium.
