Dr. Kerim Yasar

Stadium of the Mind: Nation, Narrative, and Immediacy in Early Japanese Sports Broadcasting
Kerim Yasar holds a Ph.D. in East Asian Languages and Cultures from Columbia University and a B.A. in Music from Wesleyan University. He specializes in modern Japanese literature and film, media history, and translation studies. His book manuscript, Electrified Voices: Auditory Technology and Culture in Prewar Japan examines the roles played by the telegraph, telephone, phonograph, radio, and sound film in the discursive, aesthetic, and ideological practices of Japan from 1868 to 1945. A new project will explore the role of digital media in the literary culture of twenty-first-century Japan. He has published translations from Japanese in a variety of genres and media, from contemporary Japanese novels to pre-modern poetry to subtitles for nearly eighty Japanese films in the Criterion Collection and Janus Film libraries, including classic works by directors such as Kurosawa Akira, Ozu Yasujirō, and Mizoguchi Kenji.
