Congratulations to Georgy Buntilov, my PhD student at Hokkaido University who successfully defended his thesis on 14 February and had the award of the PhD confirmed at the faculty senate on 1 March. I had to give up being his primary supervisor after my move to Tokyo in April 2018, but we continued working together to ensure his successful completion of his degree under the supervision of Professor Jeffry Gayman.
We are approaching the application season for April 2019 postgraduate entry. I have updated the guidelines on my website for people who want to do postgraduate research under my supervision from next April. Prospective students, please read the instructions carefully before getting in contact.
Many congratulations to my PhD student Aleksandra Jaworowicz-Zimny, who defended her PhD thesis on 15 February and had her degree conferred at the faculty senate on 2 March 2018. The thesis title is “Subcultures of War. Images of the Asia-Pacific War in Japanese Youth and Fan Culture”.
