Graduate Student Associates

The Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies is surrounded by an extensive community of scholars that prominently includes graduate students enrolled in a number of departments and programs. Space in the Center for Government and International Studies (CGIS) Building makes it possible for RIJS and the other Asia-related centers to provide carrels or other space to a small number of Harvard doctoral students completing their dissertations. This development offers an important new way of bringing advanced graduate students more fully into the Japanese studies research community.

The RIJS Graduate Student Associates in Residence for the 2021-22 academic year are as follows:
Jesse LeFebvre, Ph.D. candidate in East Asian Studies-Religion/Philosophy, Dept. of East Asian Languages and Civilizations
Jonas Ruegg, Ph.D. candidate in History and East Asian Studies-EALC-HEAL, Dept. of East Asian Languages and Civilizations
