Welcome to my website! I am a research professor at the University of Tokyo's the Institute of Social Science (社研) and the managing editor of Social Science Japan Journal. I study the cultural politics of East Asian countries, particularly North and South Korea. 

Research Interests

My research focuses on the cultural politics of East Asia, particularly top-down imposition of national culture in autocracies and the uses of forbidden culture as mobilizing symbols in social movements.
