6th ENOJP Conference: “(Counter)Influences”

After a prolonged pause in our conference activity, we are finally having our 6th conference. Originally planned as the fully in-person networking event that our conferences are known and loved for, the pandemic has forced us to go a little less local and change to a hybrid format. While it is unfortunate that not all of us will be able to meet physically in Budapest at the Eötvös Loránd University, the good news is that everyone from around the world can follow most of the events online.

Hybrid event: Accessible both locally at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, Hungary, and online.

Date: February 1–4, 2022

Venue: Faculty of Humanities, Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), 4/A Múzeum körút, Budapest, H-1088, Hungary

Message from the new President and Vice President

At the last ENOJP members meeting held at the 5th ENOJP Conference (2019) in Nagoya, Raquel Bouso (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona) was elected as the new President of the ENOJP. As new president, Raquel chose Roman Pașca (Kyōto University, Japan) as the new Vice President. Raquel and Roman will take over their respective offices from former President, Jan Gerrit Strala (Aichi Prefectural University), and former Vice President, Takeshi Morisato (Sun Yat-sen University, China), who will remain in the board of directors. We would like to thank Jan and Takeshi for their great work in promoting and fostering the network and welcome Raquel and Roman in their new positions!

Raquel and Roman would like to share the following welcoming message:

Dear members of ENOJP,

I hope this message finds you well. As you know, according to the constitution of our network, it was time to change the management team and, therefore, for the next mandate, we hope to develop the task of coordinating the ENOJP with myself, Raquel Bouso, (as president-elect in the vote that took place at the recent conference in Nagoya) and Roman Paşca as vice president. We are honored and happy to assume the positions and we thank you for your confidence. We are also delighted to continue counting on Leon Krings as treasurer and Pierre Bonneels as record keeper. They, together with Jan Gerrit as president and Takeshi Morisato as vice president, have formed a magnificent team that has led the association to connect more than one hundred people from all over the world with a common interest in Japanese philosophy, founding a new academic journal and a new publishing company, in addition to boosting the organization of five wonderful conferences and numerous other activities. We would like to express our deep recognition and thanks to them on behalf of all ENOJP members.
At the moment we are already taking care of the organization of the next conference and we expect soon to inform you of the dates and the place where it will be held. It goes without saying that all ideas, critical comments or proposals that you have are well received. And please, do not forget to communicate to us your activities, research and publications so that we can share the information and disseminate it. Let’s continue networking and strengthening ties. We send you greetings and remain at your disposal,

Raquel Bouso, Universitat Pompeu Fabra
Roman Pașca, Kyoto University
