What were the ‘timescapes’ through which people lived their lives in premodern Japan? The ‘Timing Day and Night’ workshop at the University of Cambridge aims to explore the understanding and use of time in Japan, and how these timescapes encompassed all aspects of social life.

The workshop is open to the public. Workshop participation fee is £50, but fees will be waived for those registering via email to Dr Angelika Koch ( by 12 April 2015.

The workshop is held in collaboration with the Japanese Society of Time Studies and Yamaguchi Time Research Institute. Funding has been generously provided by the GB Sasakawa Foundation, the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and Japanese Studies Funds.
