That’s what I want to find out.
That’s why I became an anthropologist.
And that’s why my research interest is focused on phenomena that according to me define the human experience, such as desire and how we think about it.
I am particularly fascinated by ideals and how we relate to them, as can be seen in the title of my master’s thesis: Unreal Boys: An experience-led exploration of desire towards fictional characters among fans of shotacon manga in Japan.
I have a background as a journalist and publisher of independent journals.
