Networking in Japan

Waiyee Loh's picture

Dear all,

My name is Waiyee Loh and I'm an Assistant Professor of World Literature at Kanagawa University in Yokohama, Japan. I moved to Japan to take up this position in April last year, and partly because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I haven't been able to get to know other scholars working in Japan as much as I would like to. My background is in English Literature and there seem to be so few of us in Japan. If you have research interests in postcolonial and world literatures and Victorian studies with an emphasis on East/ Southeast Asia, I would very much like to hear from you. Perhaps we can start a reading group or find some other way to share our research and connect with colleagues working in the same fields.

Please feel free to drop me an email at
