As the country that gave the world the novel one
thousand years ago, and subsequently haiku and
manga, Japan's long and rich literary history make
it an ideal place to bring together academics,
writers, and librarians to celebrate, debate, and
explore their common passion. The aim of this
International Conference is to encourage
academics, scholars and practitioners representing
a exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and
religion to meet and exchange ideas and views in
a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. By
bringing together a number of university scholars
working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to
share ideas, LibrAsia 2011 will afford the
opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making
new contacts, and networking across higher
education and beyond.

LibrAsia 2011 will not only be an academic
conference, but also offer a number of talks,
workshops, and readings of original works, in an
exciting long weekend of interdisciplinary and
intercultural discussion. The Land of the Rising
Sun offers an amazing juxtaposition of cultures,
of east and west, of religious and secular, and of
course of the Ancient and Modern reflected by
tone of the conference themes. The other theme is
Journey's of Discovery and the conference
organizers hope that delegates will join on a
collective and individual, intellectual and actual
journey of discovery.


The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 01
February 2011.
