The International House of Japan and the National Diet Library of Japan are jointly launching the Japan Specialist Workshop (JSW) to be held February 14 – 21, 2011, in which Japanese Studies researchers/academics and Japanese Information Specialists will attend a series of workshops in Japan.
The purpose of this workshop is to help the participants in obtaining, offering, and disseminating “access to the culture and the society of contemporary Japan,” and constructing an international network through the experience.
* This workshop will be held thanks to a grant from the Japan Foundation.
