Research expertise

​Gideon's research looks at early modern to modern Japan, intellectual networks, kokugaku (nativism or National Learning), community, nation and nationalism, regionalism, modernity, and information access.

Currently, he is working on a book manuscript which examines ethnography, kokugaku, and the experience of community in nineteenth-century Japan. Ongoing projects include studies of the northeastern region of Tohoku, waka poetry in modern society, and the experience of modernity through local and global sounds.​
