Dear All,

I am thrilled to join the KineJapan list. So, let me briefly introduce myself:

Chika Kinoshita
Graduate Student
Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations
Department of Cinema and Media Studies
University of Chicago

Graduate Student (on leave)
Department of Culture and Representation
University of Tokyo, Komaba

I was one of the organizers of a film series, "Japanese Cinema After the
Economic Miracle: Masaki Tamura, Cinematographer," held in Winter, 1999 at
the University of Chicago. 

My dissertation topic will be Mizoguchi Kenji, and my current interests
are: reception of Hollywood films in the mid1930s Japan; the concept(s) of
melodrama and Japanese cinema; vicissitudes of politique des auteurs,
auteurism, and sakkashugi; construction of the domestic space in Japanese
films, especially Mizoguchi films.
