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.
The website introduces my professional work as an academic, primarily my research and teaching. A full CV is here: Philip Seaton Curriculum Vitae 20180402
Away from work, I enjoy travel, photography, and classical music. I have composed chamber, choral and orchestral music since my teens. Details of my musical activities are presented in a separate site (follow the link “Music”).
