    Visiting Associate Professor, East Asian Languages and Cultures

    BioI am an ethnomusicologist and music theorist whose publications focus on two intersecting areas: 1) music and politics, particularly social movements and war trauma; and 2) popular music in global context, exploring social and aesthetic processes of globalization and identity formation. I am an associate professor of music studies at Temple University and am a visiting associate professor in East Asian Languages and Cultures at Stanford during AY2021-22.

    My first book, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Protest Music after Fukushima (Oxford), is an ethnographic study of how musicians express their politics in four arenas: cyberspace, street protests, festivals, and recordings. I consider why Japanese musicians are constrained in political expression; how cyberspace both enables and silences protest; how urban landscapes and soundscapes shape the sound of a demonstration; and the metaphorical approaches that Japanese musicians take in recordings. My second monograph, in progress, considers the pervasiveness of intertextuality in protest music and how the type of intertextuality used changes in accordance with political circumstances. I have also published articles and chapters on the interaction of linguistics with Japanese rock and hip hop; Japanese DJs; music related to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs; Japanese children's songs; Cuban music; and the music industry. Combining ethnography with music theory, I develop frameworks drawn from linguistics, political science, urban studies, literary studies, and financial analysis. I am the editor of 33-1/3 Japan, a book series on Japanese popular music for Bloomsbury, and co-editor (with Eric Drott) of the Oxford Handbook of Protest Music.

    Yamato Ichihashi Chair of Japanese History and Civilization and Professor, by courtesy, of Linguistics

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsBased on in-depth analyses of Japanese with a cross-linguistic perspective, my research emphasizes the importance of linguistic and extralinguistic context in understanding the structure, meaning and use of language. I have worked on the pragmatics of linguistic constructions (e.g. frame semantics of noun-modifying construction, reference, honorifics, discourse markers) and sociocultural aspects of discourse (e.g. politeness theories, speech acts, bilingualism, intersection of language, gender and age, ideology, and identity reflected in Japanese as a second language). Topics of my current research center around conversational narratives especially of older adults and disaster survivors – (re)framing of narratives, ordinariness, stances taken by participants, integration of pragmatic factors in Construction Grammar, and typology and functions of noun-modifying constructions.
