Midon, Gregg
Graduate Assistant

Gregg Midon is a second-year MA student in the Department of East Asian Studies with a focus in Japanese. He has earned BAs in philosophy and music from Loyola University Chicago and the University of Arizona respectively. Initially inspired by the capitalist criticism, examination of contemporary inequality, and proposed alternatives of Drs. David Schweickart and Nicoletta Ruane Montaner at Loyola, Gregg’s later undergraduate studies were directed at music composition and digital music communities under the tutelage of Drs. Jacob Ransom and Yuanyuan He at the University of Arizona. As a graduate student fulfilling a lifelong curiosity with the Japanese language, Gregg's research interests are aimed at transnational studies of East Asia with particular interests in the interrelationships between modern Japan and Korea, cultural studies, intellectual history, and interdisciplinary approaches that make use of a digital component.
