Jeffrey Angles

Jeffrey ANGLES (1971- ) is an assistant professor at Western Michigan University, where he teaches Japanese literature and directs the Japanese language program. He earned his PhD at Ohio State University in Japanese literature in 2004.

His translations of Japanese modernist prose have appeared in The Columbia Anthology of Modern Japanese Literature and Critical Asian Studies, and several more are forthcoming in Modanizumu in Japanese Fiction (Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press). He is also the translator of the forthcoming collection From a Woman of a Distant Land: Poetry and Prose of Tada Chimako (Los Angeles: Green Integer Press).

Dr. Angles’ lifelong interest in Japan and Japanese literature began when he went to Yamaguchi Prefecture in southwestern Japan as a fifteen-year old exchange student. Since then, he has gone to Japan multiple times, spending several years working and studying in various cities, including Saitama City, Kobe, and Kyoto.

Currently, his main research interests focus on the representation of same-sex desire in Japanese literature, expressions of ideology in the modernist literature of the 1920s and 1930s, and the development of modern Japanese poetry. He is also interested in literary translation and the ways that it has spurred literary development both in and outside Japan.
