The research interests of members of staff in Japanese cover a broad spectrum of topics in history and the performing and literary arts. In particular, supervision is offered in the history of Japanese religions: Buddhism and East Asia (especially Zhenyan or Shingon Buddhism); Japanese performing arts, both traditional (especially traditional Japanese drama of the Tokugawa Period) and contemporary; and traditional and modern Japanese literature.
Researchers in Japanese Studies liaise closely with the Consulate General of Japan in Edinburgh, the Japan Society of Scotland and the Japan Foundation.
