The JSAA is the professional association for those in Australia who teach, research or study Japan. The Association was established in 1978, and membership is open to Japanese Studies practitioners in Australia and overseas.

Conference theme: Living in a post-Covid Society: Mobility of People and Language across Borders for Social Integration

JSAA-ICNTJ2023 brings cutting-edge research in all disciplines of Japanese Studies and associated areas, with a special feature of Japanese as a heritage and community language. The conference engages all associated with these fields, and invites a rigorous discussion that involves (but is not limited to) the movement of people and language across borders in a post-Covid society. The conference delves into new ways of considering mobility, diversity and social integration where ‘globalisation’ now needs to be seen about in a different light.
