After twenty-four years of teaching at Keio University, I have just moved to the University of Tokyo to teach history of medicine at the Centre of Medical Humanities at the Graduate School of Humanities and Sociology. Keio has been immensely helpful, in my colleagues, students, graduate students, and administrative staff. It has also provided an ideal place for academic connections for both national and international graduate students and scholars.
The Centre of Medical Humanities at the University of Tokyo is a multi-disciplinary and international centre. It encourages bioethics in Japan to create international connections with history, philosophy, literature, art, sociology, and many other disciplines in humanities, as well as medicine, nursing, pharmacology, science, technology, and environmental sciences. If you have any interest in studying history of medicine in Japan and connecting the history with other disciplines, please drop me a note. I am looking forward to working with you.
