Research Interests
My principal field of research is Japanese literature of the Edo period (1603-1868), with a focus on the history of book publication, circulation and reception. In addition to several translations of early modern Japanese narrative fiction and poetry, I have also published articles on the works of Ueda Akinari (1734-1809), the history of amateur chaban kyōgen performance, and the development of clock-based narrative time in the popular genres of kibyōshi and sharebon (1780-1796). At present, I am writing a monograph on the history of the Daiso lending library, which operated in Nagoya between 1767 and 1899 and rose to status as the largest commercial lender in Japan.
