  • About

    I am currently researching Japan’s artisans during the late medieval era, particularly the late 15th and 16th centuries. I am examining the cultural, political, economic, and technological importance of artisans during this time, with an emphasis on how their relationships with various figures of authority (particularly provincial warlords and courtiers in the capital) influenced political and military affairs.
