About the conference

The Nordic Association of Japanese and Korean Studies (NAJAKS) has held conferences and workshops of scholars in the Humanities and Social sciences since 1988. The conferences which normally are held every three years cover a wide range of subjects, wishing to reflect the variety and breadth of Japanese and Korean studies in the Nordic countries. Although NAJAKS naturally emphasizes the collaboration between Nordic scholars, it always has encouraged the active participation of researchers from other parts of the world as well.

The 10th conference of the Nordic Association of Japanese and Korean Studies (NAJAKS) will be held at Stockholm University on August 17-19, 2016. The conference is organized by Korean and Japanese studies at the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies.

The conference is sponsored by grants from the Academy of Korean Studies, Japan Foundation and Stockholm University.
