International Editorial Conference for the Publishing of Nohgaku Zensho (Noh Encyclopedia)
An international editorial conference was held from July 28th to 30th to prepare for the publishing of Nohgaku Zensho (Noh Encyclopedia). The conference was attended by 14 Noh scholars from Japan and abroad. Each section reported on work progress. A discussion on the overall structure and items to be added and replaced was held. This year, new writers were welcomed to the Kyogen section, and the goal of soliciting as many drafts as possible was confirmed. Applications have been made for two panel presentations at the annual conference of the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS), to be held in August 2017.
