In cooperation with Nagoya University and the U Hamburg Center for the Study of Manuscript
Cultures, our August conference brought to Hamburg a team of leading Japanese and North
American scholars in the field of Medieval East Asia and allow faculty from Hamburg and other
German universities to interact with their cutting-edge manuscriptological research. The final
conference program is attached to this document. The event will be co-sponsored by our Japanese
partners and other third-party finances gathered at U Hamburg.
