Fostering Collaborations

Japanese Literature Anthology

IAS is delighted to collaborate with Dr. Sumie Jones, Professor Emerita of East Asian Languages and Cultures and Comparative Literature as she directs a collaborative project on translating early modern Japanese literature. An Edo Anthology: Literature from Japan's Mega-City, 1750-1850 (2013) was the first volume of the project, coedited with her colleague, Professor Kenji Watanabe, a former IAS fellow. The following volume, A Tokyo Anthology: Literature from Japan's Modern Capital, 1850-1920, coedited with Professor Charles Inouye of Tufts University, was released in February 2017. Jones has now completed the third and final volume of the anthology, which was published in February of 2020. 

...I loved engaging in a sustained conversation with the wonderful faculty leaders and participants from a awide variety of disciplines and institutions. It was a most productive and enriching experience.
