Thematic Programs

The 21st Century Hasekura Project: Japanese Studies as the Interface of a New Knowledge

Program Theme

This program will consider such different topics as art production, religion, thought, and subculture. These topics will be connected and understood coherently in terms of “cultural transmission and diffusion between east and west” as a general concept. Japanese researchers and invited European researchers will hold intensive discussions on each topic, and create new social networks for future research. The program will become an academic arena where different types of knowledge will come together, and new methodologies for Japanese studies will be created.
