The Ninth International Conference of the Henry James Society will be an in-person conference in Kyoto, Japan. The conference theme of “Community and Communicability” will spotlight issues concerning creating and maintaining communities that are also at the core of James’s writing by exploring the role of language and forms of social relations and networks. It will also focus on questions of nonverbal communications of the body and touching, as well as James’s views of illness and recuperation.

Attendees will have the option of purchasing tickets to the conference banquet, to be held on the evening of Friday, July 7. Optional excursions are being planned for Saturday, July 8 and Sunday July 9, with ticketing information to come.

All attendees are advised to check travel restrictions and be aware of local conditions.
