Interested in submitting...


 Independently from the CFP that we send out, we welcome spontaneous submissions of papers related to the "mutual images" between Japan and any other culture/country. We welcome papers from all fields as well as inter and muulti disciplinary articles. Make sure that your paper follows Mutual Images guidelines and referencing. Once you have checked the steps of the submission preparation checklist, you can either submit your paper here, or, if it doesn't work, email it at  

We acknowledge reception of all submissions within 15 days. If you do not receive a confirmation within this timeframe, try emailing us. 

... A REVIEW ?

We accept book reviews of monographies and edited collections published in the last 3 year. Comparative book reviews and surveys of existing literature can encompass a larger timeframe. Despite the journal being in English, we do welcome review on books that are in other languages !

We also welcome exhibition reviews on themes related to the "mutual images". The exhibitions can be based in Japan or/and abroad. For such reviews, we highly encourage you to interview the curator or any other relevant museum staff or artist involved in the exhibition design.

Mutual Images Journal also accepts presentation/reviews of relevant databases.

You can either submit your review here or directly email your paper to Alejandra Armendariz at
