In March 2011, CU-Boulder hosted a conference entitled "Publishing the Stage: Print and Performance in Early Modern Japan." The Center for Asian Studies was a proud sponsor of the conference, and helped convert conference papers into chapters of a book of the same name. Recently, the Journal of Japanese Studies credited this collection as a "Publications of Note" and it received an encouraging book review in Japanese Language and Literature. Please see below for an excerpt from this book review:
"Publishing the Stage, an engaging study of the early-modern history of Japanese theater in the context of commercial publishing, is a considerable contribution to Japanese studies. This volume, with its border crossing and inclusion of several essays treating the Kamigata region, is heartily applauded by this reviewer."
