After the highly successful visit in 2014, this summer 16 students from Nagasaki will visit Leiden. From 19-22 August they will stay with members and host families of the Leidse Alumni Vereniging ‘ Van Hier tot Tokio”. On August 19, the students will be received at City Hall then visit Japan Museum SieboldHuis and the Museum for Ethnology. There they will have an opportunity to meet with high school students from Leiden. At the weekend they will stay with their host families.
This year the The tenth International Siebold collection working conference will be held on October 20-22, 2016, in Nagasaki, Japan.
In view of this occasion, we are now inviting abstracts that will be reviewed by the international Conference Committee. We will only consider contributions based on research of Siebold’s various Japan collections, or the lives of Siebold and his direct collaborators.
