• FRÜHSTÜCK Sabine – HLW-Matura-Jahrgang 1985

    Mail vom 29.4.2005 von Sabine Frühstück:

    Ich warte gerade auf die Verlagsgutachten zu meinem Buchmanuskript, das sich derzeit „Japan Avant-garde: The Army of the Future“ nennt. Mal sehen, ob es ihnen gefaellt und wieviel ich noch umschreiben muss. Dafuer werde ich jedenfalls im naechsten Jahr Zeit haben, da ich von meiner Uni fuer ein Jahr freigestellt bin, um als Faculty Fellow am Stanford Humanities Center zu forschen. Dort vergeben sie jaehrlich 8 Fellowships an WissenschaftlerInnen in USA und international. Ich bin also ein klein wenig stolz, dass ich das bekommen habe. Dein Englischunterricht hat eben wirklich genutzt!!

    Wahrscheinlich habe ich Dir noch gar nicht erzaehlt, dass ich vor zwei Jahren geheiratet habe. Ende Juli erwarten Thomas und ich ein Baby. Wenn ich mich richtig erinnere, haben wir damit beinahe solange gewartet wie Du und Deine Frau (Thomas ist heute 40 geworden und ich bin noch fuer 8 Monate 39) oder? Hat man in diesem Alter dann wenigstens eine bessere Chance, nicht alles falsch zu machen?

    Sabine Frühstück\´s research interests within the study of modern and contemporary Japanese culture and society include problems of power and knowledge, sexualities and genders, and military-societal relations. Frühstück is currently completing a book on military-societal relations in modern and present-day Japan, Avant-garde: The Army of the Future. Her book, Colonizing Sex: Sexology and Social Control in Modern Japan, is a history of sexual knowledge in Japan and the different uses made of that knowledge. Based on a wide variety of sources including military data on soldiers\´ health, sex education treatises for youth, and pronatalist and expansionist propaganda that fought frigidity in women and impotence in men, the book analyzes the techniques at work in conflicts and negotiations that aimed at the creation of a normative sexuality. Frühstück has co-edited Neue Geschichten der Sexualität: Beispiele aus Ostasien and Zentraleuropa 1700-2000 and The Culture of Japan as Seen Through Its Leisure.

    Frühstück is an affliliate of the History Department and the Anthropology Department at UCSB and the director of the East Asia Center. She has been a visiting scholar at the University of Tokyo (1998-1999, 2001), at Berkeley and Stanford (2001-2002), and a visiting research professor at Kyoto University (2003). Her work has been generously supported by the Japanese Ministry of Education (1992-1994), the Japan Foundation (1998-1999), the Tamaki Foundation (1999), and the UC President\´s Fellowship in the Humanities (2001-2002), among others.
