Biographical details

I completed an MA in Film Studies at the University of Kent, after having graduated from Okinawa International University with a BA and an MA in British and American Language and Culture. My first MA dissertation at Okinawa International University focused on the use of metafiction in Tsuru-Henry (Go Takamine, 1998) and Level Five (Chris Marker, 1997). My second MA dissertation, which I wrote at the University of Kent, addressed the issues of nationhood, history and wandering in the films of Okinawan filmmaker Go Takamine. My research interests include East Asian cinema, cinema and (post-)nationalism, memory, history and nostalgia in film, the questions of cultural representation, and cinema and translation. At King’s, I am currently awarded King’s Overseas Research Studentship. In the past, I have worked as an English-Japanese translator, specialising in film and video subtitles.
