Held at SOAS University of London and attended by 36 postgraduate students from 22 different UK universities working on Japan related research in diverse disciplines across the humanities and social sciences, the workshop was a great opportunity for these emerging researchers to receive practical advice on their research from senior academics, and to network with fellow postgraduate students.
Each of the 36 student participants were given the opportunity to make a five minute presentation on their Japan related research and why they believe it is important for the advancement of Japanese Studies in the UK and Japan in front of an audience of peers and senior academics.
This was followed by lively group discussion sessions on how to make your research relevant to a wider audience in Japan and the UK.
The afternoon saw a series of talks by leading figures from UK Japanese Studies taking on key challenges relating to conducting and disseminating research in Japan.
The next session welcomed Prof Takehiko Kariya from the University of Oxford who provided a fascinating view from a Japanese scholar and sociologist on the different communities of Japanese Studies in the UK and the Social Sciences disciplines in Japan, and what emerging researchers in the UK can do to help bridge the gap between them.
Participants and speakers took to twitter to enthusiastically express their feedback on the workshop using the hashtag JapanPostGrad Some comments from student participants include: I like the way the workshop is evolving each time.
The aspects of what to expect in Japanese academia were very useful.
I also enjoyed the morning session which allowed me to improve my presentation skills. We hope to see you again at a future workshop! If you are a PhD student undertaking research on Japan and are interested in attending a similar event in future, please get in touch!
The 18 finalists, who had been selected from applicants from 26 different secondary schools across the UK, all demonstrated great creativity, thoughtfulness and incredible ability in Japanese in performing their speeches — not to mention extraordinary courage to present their ideas in a foreign language to an audience of over people!
The day began with speeches by students studying Japanese at Key Stage 3, who were all in Year 9. Samiha Rahman from Greenford High School came second with her speech — she also wants to travel to Japan to visit the aquariums there.
Boju was presented with a laptop by Toshiba, among other prizes. In addition to performing a speech, they also had to answer some challenging questions about their speech to demonstrate their ability to use Japanese spontaneously.
The winner, demonstrating excellent presentation skills, very thoughtful speech content on the subject of Shinto and a superb ability to answer questions, was Krishan Emmanuel, a Year 13 student at Harrow School, who won the top prize of a trip to Japan to perform his speech at the international Japanese Speech Awards.
The second prize went to Amy Watson, a Year 13 student at Wolfreton School and Sixth Form College, for her speech about the vocaloid Hatsune Miku, and the third prize was won by Ruchika Ganesh, a Year 13 student at Cheney School who talked about microaggressions and racial stereotypes.
Many congratulations to all the finalists, and a big thank you to everyone who came together to make the day such a success. More photos from the contest can be viewed at our Facebook page here.

This event is designed for teachers who already have some basic knowledge of Japanese. Featuring 14 titles, ranging from contemporary films, classics, documentary and anime, the programme toured to 15 venues around the country, including new venues in Stirling Macrobert Arts Centre and Inverness Eden Court.
Among the titles, Naoko Yamada's anime A Silent Voice proved a huge hit, selling out screens up and down the country. The film's London premiere at ICA as part of the programme was the fatest selling film in the programme.
On the day of the screening the queue was stretching out of the door - see below! The programme was also well received and was ranked among TimeOut magazine's top 10 film events in February. Here's a few snippets of some reviews:About the authors.

Essay about The Impact of Globalisation on Japan Globalisation has had a profound impact on the Japanese economy influencing levels of international trade, business operations, financial flows, government policy, labour markets and even environment.
IMPACT OF GLOBALISATION Here is more and more agreement on the fact that globalisation is an extremely complex phenomenon; it is the interactive co-evolution of multiple technological, cultural, economic, institutional, social and environmental trends at all conceivable spatiotemporal scales.
