Japanese Studies staff members conduct research in areas of Japanese literature, film, politics, linguistics and applied linguistics, anthropology, history, sociology, and translation studies. The research strengths of academic staff in Japanese Studies focus on interdisciplinary studies of Japanese culture and society both past and present. Transnational studies of Japanese culture in Asian and other cross-cultural contexts are also welcome.
For more specific specialisations, please see individual staff webpages.
We welcome inquiries from those who want to discuss possible Honours and/or HDR supervision as well as industry interested in partnerships.
