Dr Laura Moretti, University Lecturer in Pre-Modern Japanese Studies, has been invited to the international symposium 読みたい！日本の古典籍 that will take place at Osaka University on 17th February, 2016. She will be presenting the work that she does for the Graduate Summer School in Japanese Palaeography and will discuss the intellectual ramifications of this project.
The international symposium features Japanese and Western scholars who work in the area of Japanese pre-modern and early-modern palaeography. It is part of a large-scale project financed by the Japanese Government to promote the study and the understanding of Japanese pre-modern materials both within and outside Japan.
The Graduate Summer School in Japanese Palaeography gathers young graduate students, scholars and museum curators from around the world once a year for a two-week intense training in Japanese early-modern palaeography that takes place at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
