About Me

My name is Christopher Mayo and I am currently an associate professor teaching in the Communication Department at Kōgakkan University (皇學館大学) in Ise City (伊勢市), Japan.

My research examines transnational figures in Japan to revise how we view war and religion during the critical final decades of the sixteenth century, when the country was transforming from a medieval state into an early-modern nation and Jesuit missionaries first arrived in Asia.

I write in this blog about various topics related to my personal and professional interests. I have also put these posts into an Evernote shared notebook at https://www.evernote.com/pub/mayo-christopher/public.

Students and faculty at Kōgakkan can usually find me in my office or roaming about campus with my mobile office (my iPad).

    Hi Christopher, nice to find your website trough Evernote support forum.

    i have an off-topic question for you and I hope you can help me 🙂

    I’m looking for what’s the best expression to say in Japanish ‘Mentor’, and the person who is mentored. I mean, I knwo that Sisho is like a master and Deshi is like a apprentice, but my question is if there’s any better expression to say it.

    Thanks in advance and best from Barcelona

      Hi. Thanks for the comment. I’d say that onshi 恩師 would be appropriate in many situations for a mentor, but there is also sensei 先生, shidōsha 指導者, and so forth.
