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

Answer: Receiving Japan Foundation support allowed me to spend nearly one year studying and conducting research at Waseda University, improving my contacts with Japanese scholars and facilitating the gathering of materials needed to complete my dissertation. This funding was essential in allowing me the time and resources to focus on my dissertation, providing an opportunity to devote myself to research in a way that I only wish I was able to do again now that I am teaching large undergraduate courses...

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.
