Biography

Laurence Mann is a Senior Lecturer in Japanese Language at Oxford Brookes University and an Associate Member of the Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford. Laurence's research interests began in early Japanese liturgical and poetic texts from the Old Japanese (8th Century, Nara) Period. Since then, his interests have developed to span a broader range across both time and space, but retain a focus on the relationships between form and meaning, particularly in highly oral genres. His most recent publications and projects scope across a wide variety of topics in language, including language education, multimodality and poetic rhetoric in Japonic languages. He also collaborates with researchers in experimental linguistics to investigate the cognitive underpinnings of poetic appreciation (and other topics) in a variety of languages, including Japanese, Korean, Welsh, English and Mongolian.
