Congratulations Prof Sabine Frühstück — New coeditor (with Morgan Pitelka) of The Journal of Japanese Studies

The Journal of Japanese Studies is excited to welcome Sabine Frühstück as new coeditor (with Morgan Pitelka).  Sabine has been a regular contributor to JJS (and a member of its boards) since submitting her coauthored article on the normalization and management of violence in Japan’s armed forces in 2000 (if not before), and we look forward to her new contributions to JJS.  JJS is also deeply grateful to Janet Hunter for her service as coeditor since 2015 and particularly for her commitment to supporting early-career scholars and to the interdisciplinary JJS readership.


Established in 1974, the Journal of Japanese Studies is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary forum for communicating new information, interpretations, and research on Japan.  Its core objective is to maintain an enduring record of highest-quality and evidence-based scholarship through the publication of empirical and interpretive work on Japan.
