Optional Inquiry:
1. Please describe briefly how the Japan Foundation Fellowship experience influenced your career.

Answer: I received a dissertation fellowship, so the JF was instrumental in enabling me to do my dissertation and complete my doctorate. That was later published as Visions of Japanese Modernity: Articulations of Cinema, Nation, and Spectatorship, 1895-1925

2. The Japan Foundation is planning to create a network or forum among past Japan Foundation fellows. Please let us know if you have any suggestions in terms of themes, format, etc.

Answer: I would enjoy fora on my fields of Japanese cinema, television, and popular culture, but I also think discussions on the state of Japan studies is also important. Face to face meetings are important, but internet forums and wikis have their unique possibilities.
