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.

Announcing the 2020 Conference Call for Papers
Next year’s ASCJ Conference will be hosted by Sophia University in downtown Tokyo on July 4th and 5th. Please review our “Call for Papers” page for submission guide lines. Our online forms for panels, individual papers, and round table proposals are now active. The submission period will end on October 15, 2019. We will also periodically update other conference related information as we proceed with our preparations.

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
