Professor for Japanese Studies


Professor Schulz’s research focuses on modern Japanese literature and culture, primarily in urban areas and especially in Tokyo, and incorporates international scholarship and discussion of architecture and urban planning. It draws conceptually on theories of modernization and globalization. Most recently she has addressed cultural and literary exchange within the global context and deceleration phenomena and discourse in modern Japanese society.

Prof. Schulz majored in Japanese studies at the University of Heidelberg and minored in Sinology and medieval and modern history (MA 1992). In 1995 she was awarded a doctoral degree in Japanese studies for her dissertation, “Nagai Kafū: Tagebuch eines Heimgekehrten (1909): Der Entwurf ästhetischer Gegenwelten als Kritik an der Modernisierung Japans” [Nagai Kafū’s Diary of One Who Returned to Japan (1909): The Conception of Aesthetic Counter Worlds as a Means of Criticizing Japan’s Modernization], (published, Hamburg, 1997). She completed a post-doctoral project (Habilitation) at the University of Zurich in 2001 on Stadt-Diskurse in den „Aufzeichnungen über das Prosperieren von Tōkyō“ (Tōkyō hanjō ki): Eine Gattung der topographischen Literatur Japans und ihre Bilder von Tōkyō (1832–1958) [Discourses on the City in the “Accounts of the Prosperity of Tōkyō” (Tōkyō hanjō ki): A Genre of Topographical Literature in Japan and Its Images of Tōkyō (1832–1958)]; the latter was published in 2004.

Her academic career has included study abroad at the University of Kyoto (1987–1989) and a research stay at the German Institute for Japanese Studies (DIJ) in Tokyo (1993–1994). She taught Japanology at the University of Zurich from 1995–2002. For the summer semester 1999 she was visiting professor of Japanese literature and cultural studies at Kobe Gakuin University in Kobe.

Most recently, Prof. Schulz has co-edited the volumes Tokyo: Memory, Imagination, and the City (with Barbara E. Thornbury, Lanham, 2018), Neue Konzepte japanischer Literatur? Nationalliteratur, der literarische Kanon und Literaturtheorie [New Concepts of Japanese Literature? National Literature, the Literary Canon and Literary Theory] (with Lisette Gebhardt, Berlin 2014) and Urban Spaces in Japan: Cultural and Social Perspectives (with Christoph Brumann, London, et al., 2012).
