Fuji: A Mountain in the Making

I am currently working on a book manuscript entitled "Fuji: A Mountain in the Making." By resituating and augmenting conventional views of Fuji, this project offers something both novel and accessible to academics and general audiences alike: a comprehensive "environmental biography" of Japan's celebrity volcano that does it justice as an actor in, and product of, both the physical world and the human imagination. When completed, the book will consist of six chapters (in addition to an introduction and conclusion). Thanks to a 2012 NEH summer stipend, I have already completed the first chapter and made considerable progress on the second. In the summer of 2013 I will finish the second chapter and write the introduction. During the term of the fellowship I will complete the remainder of the book (Chapters Three through Six as well as the conclusion).
