Adventures in (Post) Gradland

Thoughts on life after the PhD


Preparing deadly pufferfish–somehow less stressful than dissertation writing.

Hi! I’m Lindsay Nelson, a former grad student.  I completed my 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, I now find myself teaching Japanese literature, film, and academic writing at a university in Tokyo.  When I’m not reading, writing or contemplating the bleak future of academia I enjoy downloading new recipes and making a mess in the kitchen. If you’d like to contact me please just leave a comment somewhere on the blog and I’ll get back to you, or find me on Twitter (@NewsfromNihon). I also co-run a Japanese film website which you can find here.
