Hideaki Fujiki is Professor of the Graduate School of Humanities at Nagoya University, Japan. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. in film studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Fujiki’s current research explores how cinema and other screen media facilitate human imagination and understanding of ecological and social issues at local, national, and global levels. He has also worked on the social history of cinema, media, and their audiences in relation to the construction of subjectivity, the Japanese empire, and questions of nationalism, citizenship, the masses, and transmediality; and the industrial and socio-cultural history of Japanese film stardom and the local reception of American and European films in relation to Japanese modernity.
