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 as always 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 2019/20, beginning with our annual Meiji Jingu Autumn Lecture and leading into our regular weekly Wednesday evening seminar series, so do keep an eye on our regular e-bulletins and event notifications.
We also continue to encourage financial support for our activities through our JRC Fuwaku Fund initiative. All our events are open to SOAS students, staff and members of the public. 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 and beyond.
