Why Become a Member of MJHA?

MJHA members...

  • Receive access to the members-only email list, where members trade research tips, offer up information about archives and sources, announce publications and conferences, and network with other experts on modern Japan and Japanese history
  • Receive access to the members-only portion of the MJHA website, where members access members-only features such as a more detailed members database, members-only news and events, association-related elections and polls, and other members-only content
  • Have their name listed in the public database of Japan experts available for interviews, invited talks, and consulting opportunities (if desired; public profiles can always be fine-tuned or opted out of entirely in member privacy settings at any time)
  • Attend members-only meetups and workshops at AAS, in Japan, and around the world, thereby joining a network of Japan experts and scholars across the globe
  • Promote the study of Japan by granting prizes and awards; MJHA members nominate and select the winners of MJHA prizes and awards
  • Shape the future of the field of Japanese studies; MJHA is entirely run and supported by members. All events are proposed and carried out by members in consultation with the MJHA board of directors (who are also members!). Have an awesome idea for how to help support and promote the study of modern Japan or Japanese history? This is your chance to make it happen.
  • Support the MJHA and its programming; your modest annual membership fee (just a few cups of coffee worth!) helps us maintain and grow our website and sponsor our prizes and activities. Even more importantly, adding your name and expertise to our association makes the association stronger and makes the email list more useful to everyone.

Because MJHA is a member-run organization without any salaried staff, 100% of your membership will go directly to building out our community of scholars and supporting our events, prizes, and programming.
