I am a doctorate candidate in early modern Japanese literature and history. I am a University Fellow 2017~2018, as well as a Japan Foundation Doctoral Fellow 2022~2023. I study Tokugawa-period literary history through popular literature. My dissertation project examines the transforming interpretation of bunjin literati in nineteenth-century Japan and emphasizes the role of popular literature in Japan's modernization. In particular, I discuss literati's economic roles through their participation in shogakai gatherings.
I am also interested in book history and the education of early modern Japanese paleography (kuzushiji). In addition, I have been a podcast host for the New Books Network Japanese Studies channel since 2020.
