Kurzbiographie About

In 2005 Eriko Ogihara-Schuck, originally from Japan, entered TU Dortmund to pursue her doctorate degree in American Studies. While teaching American Studies and Japanese language courses, she completed her PhD dissertation in 2011 with the financial support of TU Dortmund, DAAD, and the Matsushita International Foundation. Her recent book, Miyazaki’s Animism Abroad: The Reception of Japanese Religious Themes by American and German Audiences (McFarland, 2014), evolved out of this dissertation. Current research projects are old age in 19th-century American literature and the United States-Singapore literary relations. Her most recent publication, “On the Trail of Francis P. Ng: Author of F.M.S.R.” (2015), deals with archival discoveries surrounding the hitherto obscure yet important poetry by a pioneer Singapore writer.

Ogihara-Schuck’s transnational scholarly interests are grounded in her experience of living and receiving degrees in Japan, the United States, and Germany. Before arriving in Dortmund, she received a master’s degree in American Studies from the University of Iowa. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in Comparative Literature and a master’s degree in Education from the University of Tsukuba.
