German-Japanese Joint Symposium: Cultures in Translation (University of Tokyo, 10-11 October)
"German-Japanese Joint Symposium
Cultures in Translation: World History – World Literature – World Society.
Japan, Germany and the World in a Transcultural Comparison."
Following on from the German-Japanese joint DFG symposium in November 2017 (supported by SCJ), the discussion is to be continued and taken further. The two-day symposium will include a research policy session on the first day morning followed by an academic session.
One aim of the follow-up symposium is to present Japanese contributions to the humanities, which are little known outside Japan due to the language barrier, through translation and interpretation. The presentations and panels will provide an insight into the research interests and achievements of Japanese and German scholars and create starting points for further academic dialogue and new collaborations.
The problems outlined give rise to the following key questions:
Thursday 10th October, 9:30-17:15 (9:00 doors open)
Friday 11th October, 9:00-12:30 (8:30 doors open)
Ito Hall, Ito International Research Center, The University of Tokyo
(7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-0033)
