Bio/Research

The focal point of my research is the nexus between political thought and action, primarily but not exclusively in twentieth-century Japan. In my most recent work I have explored new perspectives on thought and action during Japan’s war years (1931-45), in the context of such themes as pan-Asianism, the discourse on economic ethics, colonialism, and leftwing movements. I continue to be interested in the rise and decline of citizens’ and other new social movements in postwar Japan and elsewhere, especially in relation to the rise of neoliberalism; the history of Marxism; and the dynamics of empire.
