20 Feb 2006 Inter-University Postgraduate Symposium at School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) 

On 20-21 February, the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and Tokyo University of Foreign Studies (TUFS) teamed up to hold a symposium in which their postdoctoral researchers and doctoral students gave presentations on their various research activities. Held on the SOAS campus, the symposium was cosponsored by the JSPS London Office.

About 30 members of the two universities' faculties and student bodies came to hear presentations and engage in discussions on such diverse topics as "Rituals and Social Relations in Java" and "The Tokugawa Shogunate's Daimyo Kaieki (attainder)." Organized as a component of TUFS' 21st Century COE Project, the seminar went a long way in promoting international exchange between the two higher learning institutions.

Following the first day's proceedings, JSPS London Office director Prof. Masaru Osanai gave a briefing to the participants on opportunities offered by JSPS fellowship and other exchange programs.
