Japanese Program Associate Professor + Head Undergraduate Academic Advisor
Associate Professor Dan O'Neill received his B.A. in Modern Thought and Literature from Stanford University and Ph.D. in Japanese Literature from Yale University. He teaches courses in modern Japanese literature, cinema, and cultural history. His research interests include nonfiction and experimental media, the intersections of media theory and ecocriticism, the locations of disability in critical sexuality studies and the history of science and technology. Recent publications include “Rewilding Futures” (Journal of Japanese and Korean Cinema, 2019), “Ecomedia in the Wild” (Critical Inquiry, 2023), and “Animal Stories and the Entangled Lives of Disasters” (Multiple Voices in Japanese Literature, 2023). His current project traces an intermedial history of the 3.11 disasters and undertakes an analysis of a range of affective responses unfolding along the discursive contours of nuclear futurity and environmental crisis.
