Librasia 2012 - The Second Asian Conference on Literature
and Librarianship 2012
6 to 8 April 2012
Osaka, Japan

As the country that gave the world the novel one
thousand years ago, and subsequently haiku and
manga, Japan's long and rich literary history make
it an ideal place to bring together academics,
writers, and librarians to celebrate, debate, and
explore their common passion. The aim of this
International Conference is to encourage
academics, scholars and practitioners representing
an exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and
religion to meet and exchange ideas and views in
a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. By
bringing together a number of university scholars
working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to
share ideas, LibrAsia 2012 will afford the
opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making
new contacts, and networking across higher
education and beyond.

LibrAsia 2012 is not only an academic
conference, but will again this year offer a number of talks,
workshops, and readings of original works, in an
exciting long weekend of interdisciplinary and
intercultural discussion. The Land of the Rising
Sun offers an amazing juxtaposition of cultures,
of east and west, of religious and secular, and of
course of the "Exchanges and Encounters" of the conference theme.
