International Congress: Japanese Spiritual Heritage in Brazil
August 24-27, 2008

In the year of the 100th anniversary of Japanese Immigration to Brazil, the Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo (PUC/SP), through its Graduate Program of Religious Studies in partnership with the Mokichi Okada Foundation (Fundação Mokiti Okada) – MOA, and with the support of the Brazilian Association of Japanese Studies (Associação Brasileira de Estudos Japoneses – ABEJ), proposes the International Congress: Japanese Spiritual Heritage in Brazil – Modalities of Religious Transplantation and Cultural Adaptation since 1908.

The purpose of the congress is to help set up a system of interchange among Brazilian and foreign researchers from the various Human Sciences areas (Anthropology, Sociology, History, Religious Studies, among others) focused on Japanese religions. Its goal is also to consolidate in form of specialized publications, the knowledge that will be produced and presented at the event.

Lecturers from Japan, the United States, Australia, Germany and Great Britain will participate in the Conference, which is coordinated by Prof. Frank Usarski and Prof. Neide Nagae. The conference will be a subsequent event to the publication of a special edition of the Japanese Journal of Religious Studies on Japanese Religions in Brazil to which the Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture (Nagoya) invited the conference organizer as a guest editor.

Phone: (11) 5087-5169/5134.
