This series of workshops is designed to orient and instruct interested participants  

in the use, handling, and research application of primary-source documents.  

We particularly welcome the participation of graduate students and early career researchers. 



Each 2-hour workshop focuses on a different category of document (scrolls, manuscripts, emaki,

hanpon, etc.), to be discussed by a field expert in its research use, according to the following schedule:  


First Half: ORIENTATION (1 hour)    *Note: Hybrid-format (in-person & streamed via zoom) 

The first hour involves a presentation by the lecturer, combining general explanation about the type of

document, how to handle it, etc., with concrete illustration through specific examples. 


Second Half: OPEN FLOOR (1 hour)    *Note: In-person only 

The second hour moves to a more open format under the lecturer’s guidance, allowing participants

to engage hands-on with a variety of texts representing the genre, asking questions freely. 


REGISTRATION (for Zoom link to streamed first half): 

Please follow the link below to a Google Forms page where you can register.

We will send the necessary Zoom link to your chosen address by 11/1.

Any other inquiries about this or future workshops are welcome at:

(Please also feel free to contact me directly off-list.)
