Dear List Members,

On behalf of Prof. Noriko Thunman (Goteborg University), the Chair of the 
Organizing Committee of the 6th NAJAKS (Nordic Association for Japanese and 
Korean Studies) Conference (August 20-22, 2004, Goteborg, Sweden), I would 
like to send the announcement of this conference. Please, direct all the 
inquiries not to me, but to Prof. Noriko Thunman (noriko.thunman at japan.gu.se).

NAJAKS 2004 is the 6th symposium of Nordic Association for Japanese and 
Korean Studies. It was first held at the University of Copenhagen in 1989 
and thereafter held in Tampere (1992), Aarhus (1995), Stockholm (1998) and 
Oslo (2001).

The aim of this conference series is to bring together and promote 
interaction between scholars and students from the entire field of Japanese 
and Korean studies in Scandinavia. Its success in achieving this aim can in 
some part be measured by the increase in participation not only from 
Scandinavia but also from overseas. It is hoped that this trend will 
continue. The theme of the NAJAKS at Göteborg is:
"Changes and Continuities: Contemporary Nordic Researches on Japan and Korea".

We welcome abstracts of original research in any area of Japanese and/or 
Korean studies; e.g. literature, linguistics, language teaching, history, 
religion, anthropology, sociology, economics, politics etc. Please send 
your abstract (approximately 400 words) electronically to the person in 
charge of the area of study.

Deadline for abstract submission: April 1, 2004

All the information on the Conference is available on its site, 
http://www.najaks.com/, through which you also can submit your registration.
