Jun Mizukawa teaches in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and in the Department of Religion at Lake Forest College. Her most recent research focuses on experimental projects in Japan that aim to establish a more sustainable, site-specific, animated entanglement across species. Her fieldwork in the northeast coast of Japan explores culturally informed responses to disasters, past and future. In addition to her work on media and technology in Japan and the political ecology of the 3.11 disaster, she’s a regular contributor to a journal dedicated to the work of the Japanese poet Noriko Ibaragi.
