I am very happy to announce that I have taken up a position in the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at the Australian National University, where I will be serving as the Convenor of Bachelor of Asia Pacific Affairs. This role entails working on the new dual degree program ANU has established with Ritsumeikan University, which is due to commence in early 2019. I will be based primarily at Ritsumeikan’s College of Global Liberal Arts, located at its Osaka Ibaraki Campus. I completed my PhD at the ANU, and it has always felt like my academic home, so I am glad to be able to return to the university, while continuing to contribute to the further globalisation of higher education in Japan. More information about the Bachelor of Asia Pacific Affairs & Bachelor of Global Liberal Arts can be found on the ANU site and the Ritsumeikan site.
