The SOAS Occasional Translations in Japanese Studies is a multidisciplinary forum for disseminating scholarship on Japan not previously available in English. The series publishes translations of in-depth work from all disciplines as they relate to the study of Japan. All submissions are peer-reviewed by established scholars in the field.
The core set of translations for this series derive from an annual workshop convened at SOAS, funded by the Nippon Foundation, with the aim of expanding the base of translated scholarly works on Japan while simultaneously increasing the number of young professionals skilled in translating Japanese language scholarship.
Representative of the wide range of scholarly disciplines focused on the field of Japanese Studies, the translations in this series are issued individually, as listed below, and can be downloaded through the links provided with each entry.
The series is published by the Japan Research Centre at SOAS, University of London and edited by Dr Jonathan Service. The series is supported by the staff of the Centres and Programmes Office and generous grants from the Nippon Foundation.
