Nakanishi, Wendy    

Occupation:university professor in Japan, writer

Location:Kagawa, Japan


I have been resident in Japan since March 1984. I came to Japan because I’d got a job. I was completing a doctorate on the 18th-century English poet, Alexander Pope, and particularly on his letters, and I was hired by a Professor Tanizaki, who had just spent a year’s sabbatical in Edinburgh, studying the works of Thomas Carlyle. I spent five years at Tokushima Bunri University as a ‘Guest Professor’, and then got a tenured post at Shikoku Gakuin University, where I’ve been teaching full-time ever since. I married a Japanese farmer and we have three sons. I’ve published quite a few academic articles, monographs and book reviews on English and Japanese literature. In recent years, I’ve been writing ‘creative non-fiction’ about my life here in Japan. I have also written a murder mystery set on a Japanese university campus. It is called ‘Imperfect Strangers’ and is to be published (under the pseudonym ‘Jeanne O’Harra’) in digital form in a few months by Endeavour Press (UK) and in print form by Fine Line Press (UK). I look forward to meeting other writers!

Riggs, Lynne E.    

Occupation:Translator, editor, copyeditor (social sciences and humanities/general)

Location:Tokyo, Japan



Born in Pennsylvania, I went to college in Ohio and spent my third year in Japan (1970). Residing in Tokyo since 1976, I have been deepening my knowledge of Japan and learning how to write, edit, and translate ever since. My world of translation was once predominantly academic texts (humanities and social sciences), pushing me far beyond the pale content of 1970s Japanese studies; the 1980s and 1990s were full of challenging projects on culture and the arts. The type of translation that is in demand has changed over the decades, but chances to translate about philosophy, religion, business history, art, and architecture kept my calendar full. Book translation has fallen off, but demand remains for art catalogues, tourism-related texts, and general culture-related projects.
  I am a dedicated member of the community of SWET; with its comings and goings over 40 years, it has been for me a bastion of professional support, community, and friendship. Twelve years as managing editor at the journal Monumenta Nipponica was rigorous training in scholarship, managing a (then-quarterly) publication, editing, proofreading, and clerical work. Fifteen years of teaching J-to-E translation at International Christian University kept me going back to the basics, striving to explain what I do, and encouraging young people interested in translation. I raised two children while carrying on with my career. I helped Takechi Manabu ( keep our small company going for 33 years until he passed away suddenly in January 2023, and am planning to keep the Center for Intercultural Communication going as long as I can—with the help of our faithful colleagues and my many SWET friends.
