The National Institute of Japanese Literature (NIJL) is excited to announce the inaugural session of a new series of interactive “Materials Workshops”, designed to orient and instruct interested participants in the use, handling, and research application of primary-source documents. We particularly welcome the participation of graduate students and early career researchers. (This is the first of three sessions planned from November to the end of 2020.)
