The Japan Studies Review (JSR), an annual peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the joint efforts of the Institute for Asian Studies at Florida International University and the Southern Japan Seminar, continues to be both an outlet for publications related to Southern Japan Seminar events and a journal that encourages submissions from a wide range of scholars in the field.
Appearing in the 2013 issue are eight articles dealing with a variety of topics on Japan, including language conflicts with the Ainu, Rūkyūans, and Koreans, the effectiveness of teacher feedback on Japanese-as-a-foreign-language writing, and Western contributions to the modernization of Meiji Japan from James Curtis Hepburn and Guido Verbeck.
Also appearing in this issue are three essays, which cover topics such as the causes of the ‘Cool Japan’ phenomemnon, an ethnographic study of an elderly Ainu man, and Zen Master Dōgen’s teachings.
