Consortium for Japanese Textual Scholarship at NIJL

Since its founding in 1972, the National Institute of Japanese Literature (NIJL) has worked to facilitate and encourage research that taps into the vast intellectual resources of the premodern Japanese textual corpus. In furtherance of this mission, there is currently underway a plan to establish a global, interdisciplinary consortium of universities, libraries, museums, and other academic associations dedicated to the study of premodern/pre-1900 Japanese manuscripts, scrolls, and printed booksーkotensekiーwith NIJL serving as its secretariat.
