Ph.D., University of Chicago

B-361 Wells Hall

Jonathan Glade received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago (Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations), where he specialized in modern Japanese and Korean Literature. His dissertation—titled “Occupied Liberation: Transforming Literary Boundaries in Japan and Southern Korea, 1945–1952”—places Japanese and  (southern) Korean literary works within a framework of overlap and intersection as a  means of calling into question the dominant, nation-based understandings of Korean and Japanese literary history and dealing with the fluidity of literary production under  US Military Occupation. He is currently working on a book manuscript, tentatively titled From Imperial to National: Transformations in Japanese and Korean Literature, 1935–1952.
