Welcome to the Johnson Society of Japan

The Johnson Society of Japan was founded in 1966 to promote the study of eighteenth-century English literature in Japan. The Society owes its birth in part to the late Professor James L. Clifford, the renowned scholar of Dr. Samuel Johnson. He came to Japan in 1964 and provided inspiration and support for the formation of the Society. Its function in particular is to encourage the interchange of information and ideas among members of various scholarly fields engaged in eighteenth-century studies. Membership of the Society is open to anyone interested in its aims.
