The research group Japan and Spain: relationships through art aims to study the presence, collecting and impact of Japanese art in Spain. It is important to ensure the future development of this line of research through the training of young researchers. Our team is perfectly qualified to provide specialized knowledge and methodologically guide pre and post doctoral scholarship holder to carry out their own research in the field of study of the presence and impact of Japanese art in Spain. The members of the group have a long professional trajectory and experience as university professors and as directors of research works (Master’s thesis, and doctoral theses), as well as a long history as researchers in the field. The group has also developed meaningful and intensive tasks of formation, always maintaining high pedagogic standards in graduate and postgraduate studies. The experience of the scholarship holder will be very rich since he will have to face problems and phenomena of very different nature and will provide a unique opportunity to introduce himself in the specificities of Japanese art and its presence in Spain.
Training Plans for scholarship holder
The training plan is something that scholarship holder should discuss and agree with their supervisory team. The supervisors will want to ensure that your training plan fits in with your overall work plan and that any immediate training needs are addressed as soon as possible.
The development of the research will also be evaluated by external experts from research centers and international universities The training plan will reflect their skills needs over your research as well as your longer-term personal and professional development goals.
A schedule corresponding to the years of enjoyment of the scholarship will be established. The phases of the preparation of the doctoral thesis (international mention) / monographic studies will be: Search, compilation, analysis and study of the bibliography related to the subject and of the documentary sources, field work, interpretation of the data and writing of the doctoral thesis / monographic studies.
The scholarship holder will carry out a program of complementary activities: learning Japanese and English languages (obtaining official degrees); attendance at seminars, courses, conferences, symposiums or research forums (national and international- specialized on their subject of research) and on techniques and new technologies applied to research; presentation of communications in conferences, symposiums or research forums (especially international) and publication of articles in specialized and impact journals.
The predoctoral scholarship holder will make two research stays:
- A short stay in other national research centers or universities. The choice of the center depends on the specific subject of the doctoral thesis of scholarship holder
- A long stay (three months) in research centers or universities with a tradition in teaching and researching the subject of the project. It is a tradition of this research group that their doctoral students carry out this type of stays at the Japan Research Center (JRC), Department of the History of Art and Archeology, School of Oriental & African Studies, SOAS, (University of London), a center of recognized prestige that has an excellent library, numerous resources and magnificent researchers.
