  • Lecturer in Modern Indian Studies

    I completed my doctoral studies in anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London in 2008. I also undertook a postdoctoral research (2008-2011) in anthropology at Goldsmiths College, University of London. My work, through long-term empirical fieldwork and critical engagement with social theory, develops theoretical and empirical insights into the political economy of poverty, violence and development in India in the context of the growing Maoist insurgency and counterinsurgency.

  • Professor Arthur Stockwin
    Emeritus Fellow

    I first became interested in Japan while embarking on a doctoral thesis at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra back in 1960. My initial topic had been Soviet foreign policy in Asia, as I had Russian from an army course during British national service in the mid-1950s. For various reasons, however, that topic did not work out, but in pre-researching it I discovered Japan and switched to a topic in Japanese politics and foreign policy. This meant starting to study Japanese.

  • Dr. Ann Waswo
    Emeritus Fellow

    As often happened many decades ago in the USA, I drifted into Japanese Studies rather than pursuing a long-held curiosity about Japan or following a coherent, career-minded plan while at university. Had it not been for the Security Treaty demonstrations in Tokyo in 1960, which figured prominently in the American media, and a professor (Thomas C. Smith) running the required historiography seminar for Stanford history majors I attended in my third year, I might have ended up doing something completely different with my life.
