Founded in 1973 as the Ukiyo-e Society of America by collectors of Japanese prints, JASA's mission has expanded to include related fields of Japanese art. Through its annual lectures, seminars and other events, the Society provides a dynamic forum in which members can exchange ideas and experiences with experts about traditional and contemporary arts of Japan.

JASA Lecture Online

JClark lecture ShungaASA has now begun an initiative to record JASA lectures when possible. JASA member John Resig (creator of Ukiyo-e.org, the Japanese woodblock print database and search engine) has volunteered to record audio of a selection of these lectures and combine it with the slides used by the presenter.  These videos can be watched by anyone interested in Japanese art and culture, and from anywhere in the world.  As a lecture is completed. it will be announced on the website and viewers can click on the tab or go directly to YouTube.  Click here to view Timothy Clark's recent lecture on shunga, presented in New York in November.
