Resources for Japan Scholars: Worth Sharing

Worth Sharing

Worth Sharing is a series of five English-language catalogues showcasing contemporary works of Japanese literature. The catalogues were published annually by the Japan Foundation from 2012 to 2017 for the purpose of recommending new Japanese literature titles for translation, and were intended as companion pieces to the Japan Foundation’s translated publications grant program. While the project has since been discontinued, the existing catalogues nonetheless provide a gateway to Japanese literature beyond what exists in translation today.
