The focus of my dissertation is the cultural legacy of poet, historian, and painter? Fujiwara Michinori, Shinzei, and his descendants in the 12th - 13th centuries. Shinzei, the de-facto ruler in the mid century, came from a family of lower-ranking nobles who were also Confucian scholars and bureaucrats associated with the Insei regimes of the period. Members of the Shinzei ichimon were waka and kanshi poets, and creators and defenders of monogatari. They have been associated with the production of the Heike monogatari , various emaki and ornamental sutras, and the sculpture of the Kei-ha.

In this regard, I devoted myself to translating in French the main works of Masao Maruyama such as: Le Naturel selon Ando Shoeki: Un type de discours sur la nature et la spontaneite par un maitre-confuceen de l'epoque Tokugawa: Ando Shoeki College de France, Maisonneuve et Larose, Since the s, I have been a professional translator and writer in Japan a partial list of my publications, academic and other, is here.
