Welcome to the new ASCJ website

ASCJ is an interdisciplinary scholarly organization dedicated to the study of Asia. Since 1997, we have held an annual conference in Tokyo, one of the leading capitals of East Asia, and we celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2016. The conference offers a stimulating environment for intellectual exchange on a wide range of topics and themes, and we welcome scholars from around the world to participate. Our 2018 conference will be at International Christian University (ICU).


To those interested in attending the Asian Studies Conference Japan (ASCJ) conference scheduled to convene at International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan on June 30-July 1, 2018 please note that Early Bird Registration began on February 20, and will remain open until April 20.

Regarding the Old ASCJ Site

On September 1st, 2017 we changed the address, structure and format of our website to better serve participants in the conference. We have also added new pages with ASCJ’s history and other information about our organization.

Please note that our former site at http://www.meijigakuin.ac.jp/~ascj/ will soon be removed from the web, and after a brief transition period, we will no longer respond to messages sent to our old email address ascj20xx(at)gmail.com. Be sure to update the ASCJ bookmark on your browser.
