Dr Adam Broinowski
Adam Broinowski is an Australian Research Council postdoctoral research fellow at the school of Culture, History and Language in the College of Asia and the Pacific at the Australian National University. Bringing his other life of theatre and filmmaking to scholarship, Adam's PhD at the Centre for Ideas and the School of Philosophical and Historical Studies, University of Melbourne examined Hijikata Tatsumi and his pioneering dance form Ankoku Butoh in light of postwar occupation culture in Japan and its continuation in the work of contemporary theatre company Gekidan Kaitaisha. This led to his sole-authored monograph, Cultural Responses to Occupation in Japan: The Performing Body during and after the Cold War London and Sydney: Bloomsbury Academic 2016. Currently, his DECRA research project 'Contaminated Life: 'Hibakusha' in Japan in the Nuclear Age' (DE 130100174) is concerned with social and cultural responses to radioactive contamination in post-1945 Japan.
