Ca’ Foscari Japanese Studies

copertina

La collana Ca’ Foscari Japanese Studies, forte della tradizione consolidatasi presso il Dipartimento di Studi sull’Asia e sull’Africa Mediterranea, si prefigge di essere un punto di riferimento a livello internazionale per gli studi sul Giappone. Raccoglie pubblicazioni di elevato rigore scientifico volte a documentare gli sviluppi più originali e teoreticamente avanzati della ricerca nipponistica mondiale, spaziando dalla classicistica alla contemporaneità. La sua vocazione fortemente multidisciplinare si traduce in una produzione articolata in quattro aree tematiche: Arts and Literature; History and Society; Religion and Thought; Linguistic and Language Education.
