EHESS Center for Japanese Studies Library

Description

EHESS Center for Japanese Studies Library was built from the collection of specialized works in the social sciences belonging to the Contemporary Japan Research team founded by Christian Sautter and Philippe Pons in 1973. Initially, the Center for Japanese Studies focused on the Japanese economy. The library's holdings reflect the research team's focus areas as they have evolved over time. At present, the team has a broader focus, and now comprises historians, anthropologists, geographers and economists.


The collection currently comprises: 

  • 13,000 monographs, of which 65% are in Japanese, 30% in English and 5% in French ; offprints and theses
  • 107 periodical titles, including 49 current publications of which 70% are in Japanese

Today the collection is specialized in all social science aspects of Japan from the Meiji era to the present. The collection also holds several works on earlier periods of Japanese history (the Edo period). Areas covered are ( in decreasing order of importance): history, economics, sociology, political science, urban planning, geography, philosophy, religion, anthropology, ethnology, law, art, and literature.
