The Chair of the Centre says:
It is my pleasure to welcome you all to a new academic year, which promises to be a busy one for the Japan Research Centre. In particular I would like to extend a special welcome to new students joining us at SOAS and to our JRC Visiting Scholars. We have a full programme of events coming up in 2018/19, including our regular weekly Wednesday evening seminar series, so do keep an eye on our regular e-bulletins and event notifications.
Some preliminary dates for your diary can be found below, including a celebration of 40 years of the Japan Research Centre, the annual Meiji Jingu Autumn Lecture and WG Beasley Memorial Lecture. I look forward to seeing you at JRC events this year and hope they will contribute to your study and research in the various fields of Japanese Studies here at SOAS.
