Japan Studies scholars present their research in San Francisco

at ISA 2024 Annual Convention

Raymond Yamamoto and Jacob Hedegaard from our Japan Studies program attended the International Studies Association 2024 Annual Convention in San Francisco in early April, where they presented the preliminary results of their research in connection with the project “Coercive and Emotional Diplomacy in East Asia: Japanese Responses” together with fellow project participants Giulio Pugliese (Oxford University) and Carmina Yu Untalan (Leiden University).

Presenting our research at one of the world’s biggest conventions for international relations scholars was a fantastic opportunity not only to promote the research being done here at the department, but also to receive invaluable feedback from fellow researchers, including Simon Koschut (Zeppelin University), one of the foremost experts on emotions in international relations, who had graciously agreed to serve as discussant.

We would like to thank Simon as well as Kristin Haugevik (Norwegian Institute of International Affairs), who chaired the discussions.
