Ph.D. Candidate in Japanese Art History
Leah Justin-Jinich

After obtaining a Master’s degree in Japanese literature at the University of Colorado, Boulder, Leah Justin-Jinich entered the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations as a PhD student at Harvard University in 2016. Her dissertation explores the complex social and financial ties between “mad verse” (kyōka) poetry groups and artists of the commercial “Pictures of the Floating World” (ukiyo-e). In particular, she is examining paintings inscribed by the eminent poet and cultural figure Ōta Nanpo (1749–1823) brushed by the artists Kubo Shunman (1757–1820) and Chōbunsai Eishi (1756–1829). 

2016年にコロラド大学ボルダー校で日本文学の修士号を受け、同年にハーバード大学東アジア言語文明学部の博士課程に入った。博士論文の課題は狂歌連と浮世絵師との社会的な交流である。特に、窪俊満(1757–1820)、また、長文斎栄之(1756–1829)の絵画にある、大田南畝 (1749–1823)という狂歌師及び知名人の画賛を考察している。
