Christopher D. Scott
Christopher D. Scott was born in the United States but attended high school in Tokyo. After graduating from Princeton University in 1993, he worked for three years as a Coordinator for International Relations in the Yamagata Prefectural Government on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. His main duties were translation and interpretation. In 2006, he received his Ph.D. in Japanese literature from Stanford University. He now teaches Japanese, Japanese literature and film, and translation studies at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. His research examines images of Koreans in Japan (so-called zainichi Koreans) in postwar Japanese literature, film, and popular culture. He is working on a book, based on his research, entitled Invisible Men: Race, Masculinity, and Zainichi Korean Subjectivity in Postwar Japan.
