Welcome to my website. Since 1 April 2018 I have been a professor in the Institute of Japan Studies, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. Previously, from 2004 to 2018, I worked at Hokkaido University. This website introduces my professional work as an academic, primarily my research and teaching. A full CV is here: Philip Seaton Curriculum Vitae 20190121
Away from work, I enjoy travel, photography, and classical music. I compose chamber, choral and orchestral music. For details of my musical activities, particularly my CD Philip Seaton – Chamber Works (released by the record label HD Impression in September 2018), see my music website or listen to the short sound samples below.
