I am a PhD Candidate pursuing a joint degree in East Asian Languages and Civilizations and Comparative Literature. As both a comparatist and Japanologist, I specialize in contemporary Japanese literature, media, and thought. My dissertation explores questions of critique and its limits through formations of artists and intellectuals around Critical Space (Hihyō kūkan, 1991–2002), the preeminent Japanese-language journal of theory and criticism, and their collaborative and worldly praxes of writing and making across a vast array of media and disciplines.
