● Other note that should be mentioned specially on duty
1. Yoshiyuki Inoue is a Professor of English and Literature at Meiji University, Tokyo, Japan. His research interests lie in European literature and philosophy, especially Samuel Beckett, Descartes, and Dante. He has conducted researches into Beckett's manuscripts reserved at the University of Reading, UK; Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland; and Ohio State University, Boston College, and Washington University (St. Louis), US. Inoue is currently interested in Beckett's shorter French fiction, mainly composed from late sixties to eighties, paying attention to the differences between the French and English editions of his work, including their manuscripts. He believes that Beckett cannot be fully comprehended without paying minute attention to divergences in his writings, and that Beckett's literary world, like ghost, appears in those infinitesimal differences. His other research interests are in Jorge Luis Borges and Paul Auster, reading them in terms of 'ars memorativa', the art of memory. He considers that these writers, including Beckett himself, can be placed in the long tradition of this art. His most recent scholarly interest lies in the Japanese contemporary writer Haruki Murakami. Inoue is also interested in the writing of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, because he tried to deconstruct the institutional boundaries between literature and philosophy through the practice of his 'écriture'.
