My research deals with femininity in Japanese culture and cultural expressions. I am especially interested in women as agents of violence - violence towards the self (eating disorders and self-harm) and violence towards others. I work on a wide range of cultural expressions including Murakami Haruki's literary works and Miyazaki Hayao's animations.
