Anna Schrade, MSc in Modern Japanese Studies, 2009-2010
Seeing my dream come true, I’m back in Japan, working as Assistant Professor at the University of Kobe, Japan. While I devote most of my time to my own research, I also teach undergraduate classes.
After completing my MSc in Modern Japanese Studies I stayed on for a DPhil in History under the supervision of Dr Sho Konishi from the Nissan Institute, with financial support from Pembroke College. Between 2011 and 2013, I was Monbukagakusho scholar at the University of Tokyo, and did extensive field research on Japan’s anti-pollution movements in the 1950s and 1960s. Back in Oxford, I worked as a tutor in History, teaching Modern Japanese History to Oxford undergraduate students in HT 2013. As I love teaching, I also started my own company, LEOX summer school OXFORD.
