The Reischauer fellowship supports the work of promising young scholars in Japanese studies, giving them the opportunity to turn their dissertations into publishable manuscripts.
Seraphim's project is "Negotiating the Post-War: Politics and Memory in Japan, 1945-2000." In addition to her research, Seraphim will give a presentation at the institute's Japan Forum lecture series in Cambridge next year.
"It is a big vote of confidence in my project," said Seraphim. "Thanks to a Boston College Research Incentive Grant for this summer and the Reischauer fellowship next year, I now have time, as well as access to academic and financial resources that are critical for the kinds of revisions I have in mind for the manuscript."
