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

Answer: The Japan Foundation Fellowship allowed me to conduct the fieldwork necessary to complete my dissertation on underground hardcore rock in Tokyo. This same topic became the focus on my first monograph, which I published in 2008.

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 very much like to see ethnomusicology included as a disciplinary area. I believe popular cultural would still make another interesting theme, as well as music in general.
