Professor Takehiko Kariya

Professor in the Sociology of Japanese Society

I joined the University of Oxford in 2008. After completing my BA and MA degrees at the University of Tokyo, I studied at Northwestern University in the US, where I got my PhD in sociology in 1988.  After going back to Japan, I worked at the National Institute of Multimedia Education from 1988 to 1991, and then moved to the Graduate School of Education, University of Tokyo, where I taught the sociology of education for almost two decades until I came to Oxford.

My teaching at Oxford includes the Sociology of Japanese Society and Research Methods for Japanese Studies.

I have been involved in area studies in Oxford almost continuously for the past thirty years. I embarked on a doctorate in the social anthropology of Japan at St Antony’s College in 1982; I then held a Junior Research Fellowship between 1985-88 at the Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies; I spent a year at the Humanities Department at Imperial College, London and just over three years as a Reader at the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex, before returning to Oxford as the first University Lecturer in the Social Anthropology of Japan in 1993.

Dr Jenny Corbett
Emeritus Fellow

I specialise on the Japanese economy and most of my research has been on current macro-economic policy issues in Japan. I’ve been interested in Japanese banking and finance for many years and have also written on financial systems in economies in transition and on the Asian financial crisis of 1997.   At the ANU I have been Executive Director of the Australia-Japan Research Centre which focuses on the economic interaction between Australia and Japan and their strategic interests in the Asia Pacific region.  Presently I am serving as PVC Research.
