Message to Prospective Students
I am a sociologist, specializing in social movements, political sociology, and historical sociology with a focus on Japanese history and society. Sociology is a field that tells us what kind of society we live in and how it is changing. It gives you insightful intellectual tools with which to see the world around us.
