Previous editions


Ever since its first edition in 2002, the Lodz East Asian Meeting gathers scholars, researchers, and students in all disciplines, specializing in East Asian studies. Being the first academic conference of its kind in Poland, gradually it has become one of the most important venues for academic exchange in the field. In the beginning it was directed at post-graduate and doctoral students from Polish tertiary institutions, and with time LEAM came to encompass young academics from various fields. The goal of these meetings is to contribute to the creation of a leading and internationally renowned study center at the University of Lodz, focusing on current East Asian problems. All of this culminated with the result that in 2012, for the first time, it was possible to invite international speakers as well as renowned specialists to take part in the conference.
