To celebrate the Graduate Summer School on Early-modern Written Japanese, we had the pleasure to host a formal dinner in one of the historical rooms of Emmanuel College. The dinner took place under the auspices of the Master of Emmanuel College, Dame Fiona Reynolds, and the Chairman of the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Prof Geoffrey Khan. We had the privilege to host our sponsor, The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, in the person of Stephen McEnally and Rory Steele. We also welcomed Prof Richard Bowring, representing the Daiwa Foundation; Heidi Potter, representing Japan Society; Stephen Cullis, representing the Japanese Embassy and Junko Sakamoto of the London office of Ritsumeikan University. The participants of the Graduate Summer School had the opportunity to meet in an informal environment and talk about their research. The love for Japan, the passion for discovering areas of early-modern Japanese culture under-researched to date and the interest for book culture constituted the intellectual bedrock for what turned out to be a most enjoyable evening. Thank you all for sharing this time together!
