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 United States. Students from universities that are not considered central Japan Studies institutions are particularly encouraged to apply. 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.
The Program welcomes applications from students who have not yet begun fieldwork, who are currently in the field, and those who are in the process of writing their dissertations. Full-time advanced graduate students, regardless of citizenship, who are enrolled at U.S. institutions and have an approved dissertation prospectus are eligible. In most cases, the SSRC will fully cover participants' travel, lodging and meals for the duration of the workshop. Funds for the program are provided by the Japan Foundation. The workshop will be held at the Asilomar Conference Center in Monterey, California, from December 15 - 19, 2004.
Application Receipt Deadline: October 1, 2004.
