Masamichi ('Marro') Inoue
An anthropological investigation of the U.S. military issues in Okinawa has been one of my major research projects. In addition, I have been writing about a range of social and cultural issues concerning “Japan,” as they have been manifested in various geographical and historical contexts. Furthermore, as an intellectual contributing to and participating in the intellectual/social life of the university, I have launched a new ethnographic project that explores the way the "multitude" (e.g., teachers, students, secretaries, janitors, cooks, and the police) work and live in the university as a key site of contemporary economic and cultural production.
