    Europe Japan Research Centre

  • The Europe Japan Research Centre (EJRC) was launched in 2001, and has brought over 200 scholars, artists and commentators from around the world to Oxford Brookes for scholarly talks and other public events. In addition to this seminar series, the EJRC has hosted research conferences, supported visiting researchers, and published Occasional Papers. At the postgraduate level, students work on Japan through the  Graduate Diploma in Anthropology and Masters by Research degrees, as well as through independent research as PhD students.

    EJRC has become a home for researchers in Japanese Studies across the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences with a wide range of research expertise, including Japanese cinema, linguistics, language pedagogy, religions of Japan, modern Japanese history, and contemporary Japanese culture.
