The Tenth International Melville Conference will take place at Keio University (Mita Campus, Tokyo) from June 25 (Thursday) to June 29 (Monday), 2015. The five-day conference (including a day-trip to cities by the sea in Kanagawa Prefecture, reminiscent of the days of Commodore Perry's Black Ship) will invite participants to consider Melville’s deep interest in globalism, the many contexts in which his work has been and continues to be read, and the range of uses to which his writings have been put.
