SECOND KANGAKU WORKSHOP OF THE COLUMBIA-KEIď-VENICE CONSORTIUM
ôReception of Chinese Texts in Early and Medieval Japanö
at Kei˘ University (Tokyo)
Graduate students, faculty, and library professionals are invited to participate in a ten-day workshop on Sino-Japanese Studies to be held at Kei˘ University/Tokyo from July 23 to August 3 2007. The course will cover the Japanese reception of exemplary Chinese anthologies like the Wenxuan and the Santishi and of the works of Bo Juyi, Su Shi and Huang Tingjian in a wide variety of kanshibun texts ranging from the Honch˘ monzui, the Honch˘ zoku monzui, Honch˘ mudaishi, Wakan r˘eishű, Shinsen r˘eishű, to medieval personal collections of Ikkyű and Eiho Y˘yű.
The workshop will be co-taught by Professors Sat˘ Michio (Kei˘ University), Horikawa Takashi (Tsurumi University), and Sumiyoshi Tomohiko (Shid˘ bunko Institute, Kei˘ University). Lectures and discussions will be accompanied by hands-on study of invaluable primary materials from the Shid˘ bunko Institute and another private collection. The language of instruction is Japanese, and familiarity with either kanbun or Literary Chinese is required. China scholars with a good command of Modern Japanese are especially encouraged to apply.
This course is part of a consortium between Columbia University/Barnard, Kei˘ University and University of Venice/Italy, which take turns in hosting annual Kangaku Workshops.
Although there is no tuition for the course, participants will have to pay for their travel and for their housing. Depending on demand, a group rate at a nearby hotel can be arranged for our participants.
Please send application materials in English or Japanese (For students: CV, transcript, brief statement of purpose explaining previous work and current interest in the field. For all others: CV, brief statement of purpose) to the address below by March 15 2006. Space restrictions force us to limit the course to 20 participants.
