Questions:
1. Are you enaged in Japanese Studies?

Answer: C. Yes, I am engaged in Japanese Studies personally, but not at an institution or organization.

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 Stanford University in August 2008 where I served for sixteen years as Consulting Professor and Director of the Stanford Center for Technology and Innovation at the Stanford Japan Center in Kyoto. Two years earlier, in August 2006, I retired from a second position as Director of the Kyoto Center for Japanese Studies (currently the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies) where I served as Director for fourteen years. I am Emeritus Director (Stanford University) and continue to do research in Japanese Studies but not at any particular institution. My current research focuses on immigration and integration issues in Japan with comparisons to other "recent countries of immigration." I also lecture as an adjunct professor at the Associate Kyoto Program at Doshisha University and on a more ad hoc basis at Japanese universities in the Kansai area.

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

Answer: A. I learned it at a university. (YALE)

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: The Japan Foundation Fellowship enabled me to continue and deepen my research and writing on contemporary japanese politics and foreign affairs, which are my primary specialty. It provided an opportunity to develop further professional connections in Japan which have served me well both in further research and for my later role as Director of the Kyoto Center for Japanese Studies and Stanford Center for Technology and Innovation. Note: The Japan Foundation was for many years a critical financial backer of the Kyoto Center for Japanese Studies, enabling it to take root and develop as a strong independent program offering course in japanese language and area studies to students from leading American universities. I am deeply grateful to this support from the Japan Foundation, as well as for support for my personal research and for staff expansion grants at two universities where I taught in my early career, the University of Virginia and Boston University.

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: Not at the moment but I may send some suggestions at a later time.
