PoNJA-GenKon in Partnership with CTCA Launches the “Online Bibliography of Post-1945 Japanese Art” Project

——March 15, 2018

PoNJA-GenKon is pleased to announce the launch of a project to create an “Online Bibliography of Post-1945 Japanese Art” to mark its 15th anniversary, in partnership with CTCA (The Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis) at Carleton University, Ottawa.

The online bibliography created by PoNJA-GenKon and hosted by CTCA will consist of searchable bibliographic items on post-1945 Japanese art history, primarily in English and possibly other Western languages. It will also include one or more PDF files listing select entries that will serve as a study guide, a research reference, and other such introductory and advanced citation tools. The expected completion date is 2019.

The project is funded by Alexandra Munroe through a donation of her 2017 Japan Foundation Award prize money.
