Gregory Golley
Assistant Professor, University of Chicago

Asian Languages & Cultures PhD, 2000

Gregory Golley's teaching and research interests include the cultural and literary history of Japan with special interest in modernity and its critique; the relationship between the technologies of mass culture and literary modernism; the early 20th century transformation of time and space -- as theory and as experience -- and the role of this transformation in reshaping notions of ethnic and national identity. He is the author of numerous articles on these subjects, and recently organized and chaired a Japan session at the Association of Asian Studies' annual meeting.
