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.

Conclusion of the 2020 Conference Proposal Submission Period
The web submission forms for next year’s conference are now closed. The ASCJ Executive Committee thanks each of the submitters for their proposals and their desire to share their research at our conference at Sophia (July 4-5, 2020). The Committee will now begin the evaluation process. Please check this site later in the fall for this year’s schedule.

New ASCJ President
At the end of June this year, Prof. Mark Caprio of Rikkyo University ended his five-year term as the ASCJ President, and The Executive Committee thanks him for his extensive service to the Conference. He has been succeeded by the former Vice President Prof. Christopher Bondy of ICU. The Committee appreciates Prof. Bondy’s acceptance of this demanding position, and it looks forward to continuing success under his stewardship.

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

Christopher Bondy
ASCJ, President
