"The Past in the Present"

6-8 September 2024
Tallinn University, Tallinn, Estonia

Call for Papers

Applicants are encouraged to send proposals for individual presentations or group proposals (ideally 3 persons together) to collaborate on a panel. Papers related to the conference’s central topic are particularly welcome, but papers on other aspects related to Japanese thought will also be considered. We encourage participants to approach the general topic in a creative way, keeping in mind that giving a presentation on a topic they are interested in is more important than adjusting the topic of the paper to the general theme.

  • Deadline of submission: Feb 24th, 2024
  • Notification of Peer Review: April 1st, 2024
  • Length of abstract: 250-500 words (日本語: 400–700字)

Tallinn University is located in the heart of Tallinn, situated between the historically rich Kadriorg district and the charming Tallinn Old Town. As such, the university campus is surrounded by picturesque locations that are a wonder to explore. If you're looking for ideas on what to do, we recommend taking a long, relaxing walk in the Kadriorg Park or along the Reidi tee promenade to experience the dazzling Baltic sea.

Tallinn University is located on Narva road, and the university campus consists of 6 buildings that are all connected to each other through a series of glass corridors and galleries. The university buildings represent a unique academic blend of modern and historic elements, offering a distinctive atmosphere for all those who visit us. Thanks to its convenient location, the university campus is accessible by car, bicycle, electric scooter, public transport, or even on foot. What's more, Tallinn University is the only Estonian university that is accessible via tram, which is the greenest public transportation option. For more information on where to park your car or your bike, please visit the university website here.

Tallinn University campus is fully accessible for people with disabilities and those with challenged mobility. Read more about that under "Venue".

On behalf of the organizing committee, we warmly welcome you to the conference in Tallinn and hope you will create memorable moments!
