Some Perspectives on the Post-War Japanese Cinema: An International Conference

13:00-18:30, March 2, 2009
Collaboration Room 3, 4F, Building 18, Komaba Campus, University of Tokyo

Despite continuous prosperity of Japanese Film Studies world-wide, there have been few international occasions in Japanese Universities to discuss their major issues. The present small symposium is organized, as a kind of prelude to the large-scale conference on American Film Studies to be held in Tokyo this spring, to examine the different ways in which the Japanese cinema can be dealt with, academically or otherwise. It is hoped that the symposium will help to activate international academic exchanges particularly among younger scholars.
