About this site

This is the personal website of Scott Koga-Browes, Associate Professor at Ritsumeikan University’s College of International Relations.

I built this site to bring together various aspects of the work I do at Ritsumeikan; pages in the ‘Classes’ section are aimed primarily at the students who take my courses and provide information and links to the material they will need during their studies.

My research work is reflected in the brief pages which detail my (meagre) research output. Not all of the material in the research section is entirely serious (please don’t cite the daft bits!)

This site was built with Jekyll using the ‘Feeling Responsive’ template. The content (including the photography and other images) is mine but the design and programming are the work of the talented individuals behind these two projects. Thanks!
