The Digital Humanities occupy an ever-growing place in the research landscape of the twenty-first century. The past few years have seen rapid advancements in the development of digital technologies in the field of Japanese Studies. Scholars working on early modern Japan—be it literature, history, textual scholarship, art, or other areas of study—can avail themselves of several digital tools. What do we gain and lose from approaching early modern Japanese culture and its multifarious texts with the help of the new digital technologies? Fostering critical reflections on both opportunities and the limitations of a Digital Humanities approach is key to enable scholars to make an informed choice about their own research as well as to identify fresh research horizons in the study of early modern Japan.

Note that Japanese and English will both be used, with no interpreting.

Full details and the registration form may be found on the conference website.
