This international symposium explores Japan’s role in the First Global Age through a comprehensive and interdisciplinary investigation of its cultural and intellectual production from about 1500 to 1700. Convening at Kyushu University, researchers from top-institutions around the world and from a wide disciplinary range, will bridge the classical humanities (history, art history, literature, religious studies, intellectual history) and history of science (astronomy, cartography, military technology).

This symposium is co-organized and co-funded by Kyushu University’s Faculty of Humanities and Yale University’s Council of East Asian Studies.

• Sessions on five event days: February 6th, 9th, 11th, 16th, and 18th, 2021 (all dates are in Japanese Time).

• Information about pre-registration and participation via Zoom will be distributed about three weeks prior to the event.

• In the case of more than 500 pre-registrations, participants from academic institutions will be privileged.

• Contact: Prof. Dr. Anton Schweizer schweizer@lit.kyushu-u.ac.jp
