Wadham College


BA Japanese 4th Year


Educational Background:

I was born in Russia and immigrated to the UK as a child. At school I always enjoyed languages, literature, and history, and luckily the Japanese degree at Oxford covers all of these interests.

Research Interests:

I spent my year abroad in Kobe, and took modules ranging from phonology to medieval travel literature. In the final years of my degree I have had the chance to take anthropology, modern literature, and classical literature modules. My dissertation will probably be based on recent literature written by Japanese women.
