My primary research interest is in literature, although I tend to indulge in critical reading of anything that constitutes a narrative. I am currently working for the Japan Institute of the Moving Image, teaching subjects in Queer theory, Feminist literary theory, English and Japanese literature.

This is the eighth year of my living in Tokyo, and I am still discovering new things about this packed and yet somehow serene city. The way people relate to each other is another aspect of interest. At the moment I am writing (or rather, mostly reading and thinking) about working women and their erotic representations in literature and films. Any input is welcome. →rio.otomo@gmail.com
