The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus
In-depth critical analysis of the forces shaping the Asia-Pacific...and the world.

 

From November 10 we launch our annual fundraising campaign to keep the Journal a vibrant and free voice exploring the Asia-Pacific and the world. Fulfilling our goal of $12,000 will allow us to do so, and to move ahead with a redesigned home page that will make our work more accessible and professional and to host a series of special issues in formation. If you wish to support the journal and assure our ability to make it available free to readers around the world, please go to our sustainer's page on the home page and contribute via Paypal or credit card. We are a 501 (c) tax exempt organization, meaning that your contribution is fully tax deductible.
William W. Kelly

William W. Kelly (Ph.D., Brandeis 1980) is Professor and Chairman of Anthropology at Yale University. He is a noted authority on the social and historical anthropology of Japan. Kelly has focused much of his research in the last two decades on regional agrarian societies in Japan. Since 1996, however, Kelly has been conducting field research on the history and present patterns of professional baseball in the cities of Osaka and Kobe. Kelly is now finishing a historical ethnography of one of the Kansai baseball clubs, the Hanshin Tigers, titled The Hanshin Tigers and the Practices of Professional Baseball in Modern Japan. He is also co-editing This Sporting Life: Sports and Body Culture in Modern Japan with Atsuo Sugimoto of Kyoto University of Education and Fanning the Flames: Fandoms and Consumer Culture in Contemporary Japan.
