What is the MJHA?

The Modern Japan History Association is a professional association of scholars interested in modern Japan and Japanese history. Our mission is to support the creation and dissemination of knowledge about modern Japan and its history by encouraging collaboration and intellectual exchange between scholars around the world, organizing events and workshops related to research and teaching, and recognizing and promoting outstanding works of scholarship. We welcome participation and support from all scholars carrying out teaching or research on modern Japan or Japanese history.

Starting up a brand new non-profit organization involves significant up-front costs, and we would appreciate any size of charitable contribution, as every bit helps!
