Job title
Dr. phil.(Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin)
Other affiliation
Kyoto Seika University Graduate School of Manga


After receiving my Ph.D. (in Aesthetics) from Humboldt University Berlin in 1991, I went to Japan where I was teaching courses on art theory and visual culture in Japanese, in recent years mainly on Comics/Manga Studies. In April 2017 I fully assumed my new position as Professor in Japanese Language and Culture at Stockholm University. I am still involved in Japanese research projects and the defenses of my former PhD students (as external supervisor), but I can't help foreign students to find affiliation in Japan anymore.
TO MEXT APPLICANTS: Please note that Kyoto Seika University's Graduate School of Manga doesn't offer supervision in English anymore.
