Across all branches of the humanities and social sciences, Osaka University is home to a particularly eminent assortment of researchers engaged in the study of “Japan”. Osaka University’s Center for Japanese Language and Culture is at the heart of the national education of exchange students, and April 2022 marked the pivotal establishment of the Division of Japanese Studies in the new Graduate School of Humanities.
The Global Japanese Studies Education and Research Incubator (グローバル日本学教育研究拠点, GJS-ERI) is designed to take advantage of these rich institutional resources in ways that cut across organizational boundaries. In terms of research, GJS-ERI aims to serve as a new interdisciplinary and international platform for the study of “Japan”, and in terms of education, GJS-ERI strives to provide students from all fields with the knowledge necessary for the practical application of research results for the good of society.
We warmly invite you to participate in our events and initiatives.
