Meeting Description:

Hear the latest research, publish before a global audience, present in a supportive environment, network, engage in new relationships, experience Japan, explore Osaka and Kyoto, join a global academic community.

The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners is proud to announce the 3rd Asian Conference on Literature and Librarianship, to be held April 4-7, 2013, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

Conference Theme: Connectedness, Identity and Alienation

As the country that gave the world the novel one thousand years ago, and subsequently haiku and manga, Japan's long and rich literary history make it an ideal place to bring together academics, writers, and librarians to celebrate, debate, and explore their common passion. The aim of this International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing a exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religions to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.

LibrAsia 2013 is not only an academic conference, but will again this year offer a number of talks, workshops, and readings of original works, in the context of an exciting long weekend of interdisciplinary and intercultural discussion. The Land of the Rising Sun offers an amazing juxtaposition of cultures, of east and west, of religious and secular, and of course the conference theme of 'Connectedness, Identity and Alienation' in Literature.
