Membership : Japan Anthropology Workshop

Japan Anthropology Workshop

Home of the JAWS conference members and committee.


Everyone who identifies with the aims and objectives of JAWS is welcomed as a member. Membership in JAWS offers an opportunity to connect with anthropologists working on a wide range of topics related to the anthropology and ethnography of Japan. Benefits of membership include the JAWS Newsletter (electronically posted at this website), membership to a mailing list (listserv), access to the JAWS internet tools and databases, and participation at JAWS conferences that meet roughly every 18 months. Membership also includes a 70 percent discount on all hardback books in the JAWS/Routledge series.

We have instituted a Lifetime Membership for only £25 / €30 / $40 / ¥4000.

Members who have paid up to 2013 or 2014 are now life members with immediate effect. Members who paid only once so far or paid up until 2011 or 2012 have to contribute Euro 10 to become life members.

Life Membership terminates for the following reasons:

  • when a member asks for the membership to terminate
  • if a member should use the facilities to damage the reputation of JAWS. A decision about termination of membership will be taken by the officers.
