About Aaron Gerow

I mostly teach Japanese and East Asian cinema and culture at Yale University, where in particular I help run a unique combined doctoral program in East Asian cinema between the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures and the Film and Media Studies Program. I have published numerous works in English, Japanese and other languages on such topics as Japanese early cinema, contemporary directors, film genre, censorship, Japanese manga, and cinematic representations of minorities. My most recent books are on early Japanese film culture, Kitano Takeshi, and A Page of Madness. I've also written the Research Guide to Japanese Film Studies with Abé Mark Nornes, which has also come out in Japanese translation. I also work on animation and genre studies beyond Japan. My most recent research is on the history of film theory in Japan.
