APJ Subscription Drive December 2017

With tensions between the US and North Korea at fever pitch in the era of Donald Trump, with mounting conflict between the US and China, China and the nations of the South China Sea, and between Okinawa and the US-Japan, we believe that APJ is more important than ever.

We have no corporate, foundation or university angel, so our ability to publish relies heavily on our core supporters.

We come to you twice a year to request the financial support that allows us to provide APJ free to our 18,000 regular readers and thousands of others around the world. The journal is strong and growing. We need support to maintain it free to global readers.

If you value the journal, please go to our homepage where you can both subscribe to our semi-monthly Newsletter and contribute (tax free) via Paypal or credit card.

We need support in the range of $100-500-1,000 to maintain the site toward our goal of $12,000.

Noriko Manabe is Associate Professor of Music Studies at the Boyer College of Music and Dance, Temple University. Her monograph, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Protest Music after Fukushima (Oxford, 2015), addresses the constraints on free political expression and the ways in which Japanese musicians work with or overcome them in cyberspace, demonstrations, festivals, and recordings. She has published articles on Japanese hip-hop, the internet and the music business, wartime children's songs, and Cuban music, and she has long-term projects on Japanese club music and Japanese children’s songs. She is currently preparing Revolution Remixed, a monograph on the intertextuality of protest music (Oxford); Nuclear Musican edited volume on musical responses to nuclear war, disasters, and power (with Jessica Schwartz); and The Oxford Handbook of Protest Music (with Eric Drott).
