CALL FOR PANELS AND PAPERS
Between the word,
the sound and the image:
A Centenary of Polish-Japanese
4-6 December 2019,
Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU), Poznan, Poland
The Department of Japanese Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU)
invite panel and paper proposals for the International Conference to be held on 4-6
December 2019 at AMU in Poznan, Poland.
The centenary of establishing official relations between Poland and Japan
encourages reflection not only on the stability and diversity of these contacts and on
mutual fascinations, but also encourages to pay attention to what is so typical of
Japanese culture ‒ the integral relationship of word (literature), sound (music) and
image (art), their mutual interpenetration and its results.
The conference is addressed mainly to scholars (specialists in Japanese studies,
art historians, museum curators, musicologists, theatrologists, specialists in film
studies) as well as to artists (painters, sculptors, musicians, actors, directors) creating
on the cultural border, especially between Poland and Japan.
