This conference will bring together graduate students from all disciplines in the field of Japanese Studies to explore the past and present role of media in Japan.

We welcome submissions from any and all disciplines. Papers may explore, but are not limited to, the following areas of study:
|-mediation in literature
-theater and film
|-new media studies
-politicians and the media
