2nd International Budo Conference (Japanese Academy of Budo 50th Anniversary Conference)


50th Anniversary Conference (2nd International Budo Conference, collaborated with  6th International Conference of IMACSSS and Other’s)

Dates: September 6 (Wed.) ~ September 8 (Fri.), 2017

Venue: Kansai University’s Senriyama Campus (Osaka)

Theme: Budo and the Martial Arts: The Crossover Between Traditional Culture and Popular Culture

The extent of budo’s reliance on popular culture, and its potential in budo’s ongoing evolutionary process is an area of budo studies that remains virtually untouched. Especially now as modern technology is advancing almost exponentially, the forms and styles of popular culture is also changing. The way in which budo will be portrayed in popular media from now will also change, and so then must the ways it is managed. With these points in mind, the theme for the Japanese Academy of Budo’s international convention will seek to investigate the role popular culture has played in complementing budo culture in the past, present, and future. This will include the portrayal of budo in art, film, TV, anime, literature, games, and so on. How important is the symbiotic relation between budo and pop culture? How has the media and popular culture influenced the way budo is perceived in the wider community? Is budo in fact popular culture?

Martial Arts Studies Conference 2017

July 11th to the evening of Thursday July 13th, 2017 at Cardiff University.

Both previous Martial Arts Studies Conferences, in 2015 and 2016, brought together over eighty academics, PhD students, scholars and researchers, from a very wide range of fields and from all over the world, for two and a half days of keynotes, special sessions, workshops and socialising. Many new relationships were formed and new collaborations initiated. Both events have clarified that the future is bright for Martial Arts Studies. The third conference in July 2017 seeks to build on these strong foundations, and to bring more martial arts studies scholars and more disciplinary perspectives together, into face to face dialogue and debate.
