The Japan Anthropology Workshop (JAWS) is an international academic association concerned with furthering the field of anthropology of Japan. We welcome new members from all over the world; click the ‘Joining JAWS’ link above for more information.
JAWS holds major conferences – some in conjunction with the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) – as well as smaller workshops and seminars. It runs a website and issues a newsletter. JAWS publishes selected works on Japan anthropology in partnership with Routledge.
