Convegni e workshops

Convegni e workshop su temi specifici sono organizzati di norma in collaborazione con università o istituti di ricerca giapponesi ed europei. École Française d’Extrême-Orient e Institute for Research in Humanities rimangono i partners privilegiati per i convegni, ma la collaborazione in questo campo non è esclusiva. La Scuola è presente da più di trent’anni nella comunità scientifica internazionale tra i centri di ricerca stranieri in Giappone dove presentare i risultati degli studi in corso.

Kitashirakawa EFEO Salon – Final Workshop

Aspects of Lived Religion in Late Medieval and Early Modern Japan 

November 13 2021  10:00 – 17:00 JST

The French School of Asian Studies (EFEO), the Italian School of East Asian Studies (ISEAS), and the Institute for Research in Humanities (Kyoto University) are organizing a workshop to conclude the Kitashirakawa EFEO Salon, a series of lectures on  Japanese religions held from 2018 to 2020.

The workshop will take place on-site, at the EFEO Kyoto center, and online via Zoom on November 13 (from 10 AM JST). The eight talks, seven in English and one in Japanese, aim at uncovering aspects of “lived religion” (or religion in practice) in late medieval & early modern Japan (16th to 19th c.) using innovative approaches and/or neglected primary sources. The speakers cover different religious traditions (Zen, Pure Land, Shingon, Shugendo, “folk” beliefs, and Christianity). The Cahiers d’Extrême-Asie will publish a special issue based on the contributions presented during the workshop.

Prior registration, on-site or online, is required.

Due to the sanitary situation, the on-site participation will be limited to 20 people.
