About the VSJF
The German Association for Social Science Research on Japan (VSJF) was founded in 1988. Its general aim was and still is to strengthen the study of contemporary Japan in the German-speaking countries, namely Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. The Association is conceived as a forum for researchers and students from the fields of Japanese studies as well as from social sciences, including cultural studies.
