Jeremy Woolsey received his M.A. from the Graduate School of Global Arts at Tokyo University of the Arts in 2019. His current research traces genealogies of mass media critique and subcultural journalism in Japan from the 1970s through the 1990s. He is particularly interested in understanding how new left activists continued their political and cultural projects in the realm of print media following the waning of the student movement in the 1970s. This transition is explored through a wide variety of publications including “racketeer” magazines, the “anti-authoritarian” scandal magazine Uwasa No Shinsō, and the influential “mook” (magazine-book) series Bessatsu Takarajima, among others. Collectively, these publications demonstrate the various discursive and medial strategies ex-new left editors and writers employed to grapple with the increasing affluence of the 1970s, the 1980s bubble, and the recessionary, politically turbulent 1990s. Although the form and significance of print culture changed significantly in this period, Jeremy's research illustrates how independent and alternative print media adapted to foster social critique in late twentieth-century Japan.
