Premodern Japanese Studies

Premodern Japanese Studies (PMJS) is a worldwide network of scholars, students, and professionals who research premodern Japan. Through a mailing list and online resources we serve as a platform for the dissemination of information relevant to fields such as Japanese art, art history, literature, history, culture, language, and religion. With over 1000 members from more than 40 countries, PMJS is the largest and most diverse academic network dedicated specifically to premodern Japan.

The core of PMJS is a listserv that functions to facilitate scholarly discussion among members. PMJS Papers publishes academic material in both traditional and non-traditional formats, styles, and lengths.
