After graduating from Yale College in 2013 with a B.A. in Film Studies and East Asian Studies, the Parker Huang Travel Fellowship enabled Jason to spend a year studying academic Japanese as a student of Art History at the Inter-University Center in Yokohama, Japan. Love then brought him to the city of Los Angeles, where he worked as an office manager by day and as a freelance translator by night. His translation projects included a special exhibition and catalogue for the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and a year-in-review publication for the city of Matsudo’s Artist in Residence program.
As a student in the combined program between Film Studies and East Asian Languages and Literatures, Jason’s interests include the aesthetic and technological histories of animation in East Asia, Japanese popular culture, as well as the intersection of film theory and practice. Outside of the library, Jason enjoys watching movies with his cats, Vash and Baymax, and eating any and all sweets that he encounters – especially chocolate ones.
