Questions:
1. Are you enaged in Japanese Studies?

Answer: A. Yes, I am engaged in Japanese Studies at a university or research institution.

Field of Study: Political Science/Economy

2. Please describe what you are currently doing. (If you have your own website or any relevant site, provide its URL.)

Answer: I retired from the University of Michigan and I now have a courtesy appointment at the Institute of Gerontology, University of Tokyo. I continue to do research on long-term care (Kaigo Hoken) and other social policies, as well as Japanese politics in general.

3. Where did you acquire your most advanced Japanese language training for your research?

Answer: B. I learned it at a special language training school. (The Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies)

4. Have you ever participated in the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme?

Answer: NO

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

Answer: Support I have had from the Ford Foundation (my dissertation), Fulbright, Abe, JSPS and the Japan Foundation since 1970 have been crucial to my long career of research and teaching on Japan.

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 think it is a good idea to have a directory. There are a lot of fora around in the Japan field now that serve various specialized interests, and then H-Japan which is pretty general. I am not sure what niche remains for JF. Probably more in the culture, arts, humanities area.
