Kyoko Omori

Kyoko Omori, associate professor of Japanese and chair of East Asian Languages and Literatures, has been awarded a Hakuho Foundation Japanese Research Fellowship to support her research during her sabbatical in 2018-19.

The fellowship will support time at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan. She will be working on her book and digital archive project titled "Technologies of the Voice: Silent Film, Benshi Narration, and Radio Storytelling in Modern Japan."

This study explores intersections among image, text, and voice in early to mid-20th century Japan as an important chapter in the history of the senses under the conditions of global modernity.
