The annual SSRC Japan Studies Dissertation Workshop seeks to create a sustained network of advanced graduate students and faculty by providing the opportunity to give and receive critical feedback on dissertations in progress. The annual workshop draws participants from all fields in the social sciences and humanities and from institutions throughout the US. Individual students lead discussions of their projects with mentor faculty and student peers from various disciplines to receive creative and critical input on improving their fieldwork plans or writing strategies.
Eligibility and Application
Full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship, who are enrolled at US institutions are eligible for the workshop.
Applicants must have an approved dissertation prospectus at the time of application, but cannot have completed writing for final submission.
Students from universities that are not considered central Japan Studies institutions are particularly encouraged to apply.
The workshop this year will take place December 15-19 at the Asilomar Conference Center in Monterey, California and will involve approximately 12 students and 4 faculty.
Application Deadline: October 1, 2004
