Andrew Littlejohn
is an assistant professor at Leiden University’s Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. Prior to joining Leiden, he held a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs’ Program on U.S.-Japan Relations at Harvard University, where he received his PhD in Social Anthropology with a secondary field in Critical Media Practice in 2017. The core question motivating his research is how to live sustainably in a world damaged by both intensifying hazards and the technologies we develop to mitigate them. His current work examines these issues in the context of Japan’s 2011 tsunami and its aftermath. Alongside his teaching and research, he produces works of audiovisual media with a particular focus on the ethnographic and documentary possibilities of sound.
