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 NOTICE Regarding the 2021 Conference:
The Start of Online Submissions
September 15, 2020
As everyone is certainly aware, the global spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus caused the cancelation of many scholarly activities, including the 2020 ASCJ Conference. The ASCJ Executive Committee continues to monitor conditions in Japan, but it has decided to carry on with preparations for its 2021 Conference. The Committee is thus happy to announce the online Proposal Submission forms are open from today. As in past years, the submission deadline will be October 15th.

Please see the 2021 Call for Papers for further information.

The Committee thanks you for your continuing interest and support of ASCJ.

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

ASCJ, President
