Welcome to ASCJ

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. 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.

Important Information Regarding the 2022 Conference.
Traditionally ASCJ announces the Call for Papers on September 15 for its Tokyo conference in the following year. However, due to the continuing uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the ASCJ Executive Committee has decided to hold the 2022 conference with an on-line only format. We will have more information regarding the structure and the dates for next year’s conference soon. Please check this site for further updates.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send us a message via our Contact page.
