Biography:

Specialization: Japanese Literature, Visual culture, Material culture in East Asia, Disaster studies.  My interests lie in Japanese literature, disaster studies, material and visual culture.  I specialize in kimono textiles, their circulation and material life in Europe, depictions of kimono in literature (East and West) and how kimono designers in Japan use literary motifs in their kimono design.  I am also interested in the proliferation and circulation of apocalyptic visual culture and themes in East Asia and trauma studies.
