  Research Interest 


Developing a critical and feminist understanding of Japanese political economy, especially the era from the post-war to the present. My work draws heavily on three theoretical sources. The first the theoretical corpus of Antonio Gramsci, beginning with his work on hegemony and organic crisis. The second is critical and Marxian political economy and social theory, including thinkers such as Bob Jessop, Wolfgang Streeck, and David Harvey. The third is feminist political economy and social reproduction theory in particular.
