My article “Islands of ‘Dark’ and ‘Light/Lite’ Tourism: War-related contents tourism around the Seto Inland Sea” has been published as part of the special edition “War, Tourism, and Modern Japan” in the journal Japan Review. It is open access and can be viewed here.
Do check out the new videos menu. I will be putting online teaching materials, lectures and other such videos on this page.
As my contents tourism grant wraps up, I have published three research notes on the International Journal of Contents Tourism about my research into tourism relating to The Last Samurai.
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.
