Adventures in (Post) Gradland

Thoughts on life after the PhD


Preparing deadly pufferfish–somehow less stressful than dissertation writing.

Gradland is, not surprisingly, a former grad student.  She completed her PhD in Comparative Literature in May 2012 (dissertation title: Embracing the Demon: Monstrous Children in Japanese Literature and Cinema, 1946-2008). After a brief period away from academia working as a web educator, she now finds herself teaching Japanese literature, film, and academic writing at a university in Tokyo.  When she’s not reading, writing or contemplating the bleak future of academia she enjoys downloading new recipes and making a mess in the kitchen. She tries to keep this blog semi-anonymous (though at this point most people probably know who she is), but if you’d like to contact her please just leave a comment somewhere on the blog and she’ll get back to you.
