I want to tell you about our plans for the upcoming AAS meeting in Washington, DC.
On Friday, March 23, we will have a no-host happy hour event at the Jug & Table (2446 18th St, Washington, DC 20009 b/t N Columbia Rd & N Adams Mill Rd) at 8:00pm. I will be leaving from the lobby of the Marriott at 7:30; it is a 20 minute walk.
On Saturday, March 24, we will have our business meeting from 1:00-2:30 in the Jackson room of the Marriott, which will include a roundtable on the 2017 General Election. Dan Smith, Masahiko Asano, and Sherry Martin will all present. All are welcome; bring your friends too.
Also, I would like to officially welcome Kenneth McElwain from Tokyo University as the new co-director of the Japan Political Studies Group!
Finally, we would like to keep our teaching resources up to date (you can find them here: http://japanpsg.blogspot.com/2017/07/resources-for-teaching-about-japanese.html) , so if you have an updated Japanese politics syllabus or other resources to share, please pass them along to Michael Strausz (michael DOT strausz AT tcu DOT edu).
