Jonathan Glade received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago (Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations), where he specialized in modern Japanese and Korean Literature. His dissertation—titled “Occupied Liberation: Transforming Literary Boundaries in Japan and Southern Korea, 1945–1952”—places Japanese and (southern) Korean literary works within a framework of overlap and intersection as a means of calling into question the dominant, nation-based understandings of Korean and Japanese literary history and dealing with the fluidity of literary production under US Military Occupation. He is currently working on a book manuscript, tentatively titled From Imperial to National: Transformations in Japanese and Korean Literature, 1935–1952.
