The Nissan Institute uses the three main application deadlines: 22 November 2013; 24 January 2014 and 14 March 2014. We suggest you apply by the January deadline if at all possible.
Dr Hiroaki Matsuura has taken up the post of Departmental Lecturer in the Economy of Japan starting January 2013. Dr Matsuura joins us from Harvard University where he has recently completed a doctorate on "Rights, Health Laws, and Health Outcomes".
The Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies is sad to announce that during the summer vacation Mark Rebick decided to take early retirement from his post as University Lecturer in the Economy of Japan. He joins Ann Waswo and Arthur Stockwin as an emeritus fellow of the institute.
The Nissan Institute also publishes an Occasional Paper series which has been used to enable papers first presented in the Seminar Series to reach a wider readership. Starting in 1997 the papers can be downloaded directly from this website. Papers published prior to 1997 are still available and may be ordered by writing to the Administrator, Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies, University of Oxford, 27 Winchester Rd, Oxford OX2 6NA, UK.
This brochure provides a brief history of Japanese studies at Oxford University, an explanation of the origins of the Nissan Institute and an introduction to the current fellows working here and their research interests.
