Hiromi Sasamoto-Collins, Dr
Tutor, Japanese Studies
Currently I teach Japanese history, politics, society and language at Asian Studies. In the 1990s I worked for the Yomiuri Shimbun and its English-language newspaper in Tokyo as a translator and reporter. I obtained my Ph. D from the University of Edinburgh in 2005 and taught modern and medieval Japanese history, modern Korean history, modern East Asian political thought, and translation at Durham University from 2004 to 2007. I have been teaching at Edinburgh since 2008.
