New Book: War as Entertainment

The latest book in our contents tourism project, War as Entertainment and Contents Tourism in Japan (edited by Takayoshi Yamamura and Philip Seaton), was published open access by Routledge. However, a much better way of reading the book is via my website War Memory Tourism, where you can see the chapter pdfs alongside related materials.

「地球の音楽」が出版された

I have a short essay in Chukyu no ongaku (Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press, 2022) about music in the United Kingdom. It is more personal essay than research paper, but it signals the beginning of a more active focus on music research alongside my composing activities, something I have discussed in my music blog. The chapter is in Japanese (see the publisher’s page here).

New website: War Memory Tourism

I have created a new website called War Memory Tourism. This website is a research and teaching resource that is designed as an online appendix for my various research projects and an interactive reading list for my students. Do check it out!
