Cipango, the journal of Japanese studies

Cipango is a French-language journal run by the INALCO devoted to Japan. Its perspective is resolutely pluridisciplinary (history, ethnology, geography, economics, linguistics, literature, the arts, cinema, etc) and it also privileges contributions focussing on primary Japanese language source material.Cipango is currently the only academic journal about Japan published in France. For the opening of the journal’s website, three issues have been published online in full-text:  no. 16 (2009), The invention of the ‘popular arts’, Yanagi Sōetsu and Mingei; no.15 (2008), War, colonialism and commemoration and the 2008 special issue, Looking at Genji Monogatari.
