Join AJS members and friends at a Japanese culture event to celebrate the winner of the 6th Inoue Yasushi Award, presented annually to an outstanding researcher in Japanese literature by the Inoue Yasushi Memorial Foundation.

Inoue Yasushi (1907-91) was one of Japan's most popular postwar writers, known for his historical fiction set in Japan and western China. His novels Lou-Lan and Tun-huang (Dunhuang) received the Mainichi Art Award in 1960.

The Inoue Yasushi Award for Outstanding Research in Japanese Literature in Australia and New Zealand was inaugurated in 2007. This annual award is for the best refereed journal article or book chapter published in English during the previous year by a researcher based in Australia or New Zealand.

The Inoue Yasushi Memorial Foundation & AJS board member Mr. Ohtani established the award in order to support and encourage research into Japanese literature in Australia.

This event is free but bookings are essential. For more details see the flyers here: English flyer /Japanese flyer. RSVP directly via the form at http://inoueyasushi.org
