This is a blog that has not yet been decided what it shall become. For the time being, it borrows a cliché from Japanese Meiji novelist Natsume Sōseki: “I am a cat. As yet I have no name” (Wagahai wa neko dearu (“I am a Cat“), 1905).
I am Hidefumi Nishiyama, currently an Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) Early Career Fellow, Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS) at the University of Warwick.
