Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU),
The Department of Japanese Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) invite panel and paper proposals for the International Conference to be held on 4-6 December 2019 at AMU in Poznan, Poland.
The centenary of establishing official relations between Poland and Japan encourages reflection not only on the stability and diversity of these contacts and on mutual fascinations, but also encourages to pay attention to what is so typical of Japanese culture ‒ the integral relationship of word (literature), sound (music) and image (art), their mutual interpenetration and its results.
The conference is addressed mainly to scholars (specialists in Japanese studies, art historians, museum curators, musicologists, theatrologists, specialists in film studies) as well as to artists (painters, sculptors, musicians, actors, directors) creating on the cultural border, especially between Poland and Japan.
Language of Presentation: English.
