Welcome to Yale Nihonshi! Our program has a long and distinguished history but is also in the midst of an exciting period of renewal and growth. Drawing on the combined resources of the Yale History Department, the Council on East Asian Studies, and the University Library, we are able to offer a wide variety of opportunities to engage deeply with the study of Japan’s past. This website is intended to serve as an online hub for our intellectual community, helping to disseminate information about events and resources, while also showcasing some of our ongoing projects and activities. We encourage you to explore and welcome your suggestions for the future.
