Arthur Mitchell teaches courses in Japanese film, animation, literature, and translation.  He also instructs first year Japanese with a keen interest in Japanese language pedagogy.  His scholarship examines literary modernism in Japan from a transnational perspective with a specific focus on how modernist fiction engaged and critiqued the dynamic social developments of the 1920s in Japan.  He completed his undergraduate and graduate study at Yale University and has spent time as a visiting researcher at Waseda University in Tokyo.  Having lived in many places around the world, he seeks to develop global citizenship through his teaching of foreign language, art, and culture.
