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). During the term of the grant I will complete the first two chapters: "Landscape in the Making" and "Image in the Making."
