An interview with Naoki Kasuga

Naoki Kasuga, Casper Bruun Jensen

Abstract


Professor Naoki Kasuga is the editor of the Anthropology as critique of reality. He has worked at Hitotsubashi University since 2010, when he moved from a position at Osaka University. In many ways Kasuga is a unique figure in Japanese anthropology. He is the author of a series of experimental and highly divergent works, and he was one of the translators of Writing culture into Japanese. This interview weaves together a discussion of Kasuga’s own trajectory with a story of some broader transformations in Japanese anthropology that have lead to current explorations of ontology.
