The AATJ Annual Spring Conference will be held in conjunction with the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Association for Asian Studies. We strongly encourage everyone attending the AATJ Annual Spring Conference to also attend the AAS meeting, which takes place at the same venue, the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, from March 27 - 30. This major conference features hundreds of presentations on Asian culture, history, politics, literature, and language -- including many on Japan -- as well as a huge Exhibit Hall where dozens of publishers show and sell their books on Asia.
AATJ is sponsoring two panel sessions at the AAS conference. The first is on Friday, March 28: "Collaboration in the Translation of Japanese Literature: Author and Translator Partnerships after the 3.11 Disasters and Beyond" (8:30 – 10:30 a.m.). The second is on Saturday, March 29: Translation Reconsidered in the Japanese Language Curriculum ( 10:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.) In order to attend these sessions and many others on Japanese culture, history, and society, registration for the AAS Annual Meeting is required. Information on registering for and attending the AAS Annual Meeting is available at http://www.asian-studies.org/Conference/ .
Hotel accommodations can be reserved at the AAS conference hotels through the AAS conference website. Please mention that you are attending the AAS conference in order to get the special rates that will be offered.
