BioAriel Stilerman earned his Ph.D. in Japanese literature from Columbia University and has undergone training in diverse fields such as the Tea Ceremony, Clinical Psychoanalysis, and Industrial Design. His first monograph studies the role of classical verse in the transmission of culture and knowledge across social classes. His current project looks at medieval illustrated narratives, poetic contests, and encyclopedic works to explore how changes in knowledge, authority, and technology can create opportunities for the construction of new shared cultural networks in the aftermath of natural and social catastrophes. Still on hold is the first direct translation of Genji monogatari into Spanish.
