Nov 20, 2019: We spend most of our time letting you know what we publish (or want to publish) in NVJS, but this time we turn the spotlight onto what our alumni have been publishing outside of NVJS. (We’ve narrowed this list down to books, but there are plenty of chapters and articles out there by NVJS alumni too.)
Below, we introduce 6 publications that have been released by NVJS authors over the past 5 years, starting with the most recent.
Of course, if you’d like to review any of the books listed here, do let us know!
Jenny is an anthropologist who uses ethnography to understand changes in the consumption and production of traditional fashion such as kimono in Japan.
Gwyn is a historian whose work draws on oral histories to document the stories of atomic bomb survivors from Japan’s Catholic community.
Lucy is a literature and popular culture scholar who researches female writing, representations of female figures and fairy tales both within and beyond the sphere of Japanese literature.
Adam’s research focuses on the nexus between performing arts and the nuclear in Japan, from postwar times to the present.
Christine is a historian whose work centres on World War II, and in particular on occupation by Japan and the Allied Forces.
Masafumi’s research centres on fashion, gender and visual representations of masculinity in Japan, both past and present.
