Research Interests

I was born and educated in Shizuoka, Japan. My first experience of Komaba was during the first two years at University of Tokyo. I then read English Literature for a B.A. and an M.A. at Department of Letters, University of Tokyo, then for an M.Phil and D.Phil in English Literature at Keble College, Oxford. I joined Department of Language and Information Sciences in 2012, after working for the Open University of Japan and teaching at Department of Letters, Nagoya University. My research interest is in the socio-political aspect of English literature in the eighteenth century and the Romantic period. I am currently working on three different themes, which are 1) the ideas of charity as we find formulated and developed in the society and literature of the Romantic age, 2) women and the public sphere in eighteenth-century Britain, 3) architecture and literature in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Britain.
