Dr. Jeffrey Newmark earned his PhD in Asian Studies, with a major in Thought of the Tokugawa Period, from the University of British Columbia in 2009. He has lived in Japan off and on for five years: three years in Hokkaido while on the Japanese Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme and two years in Kyoto as a Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology research fellow.

Newmark initially came to Manitoba to teach a summer sessional at the University of Manitoba, and soon thereafter began teaching at The University of Winnipeg. He is currently working on revising his dissertation into a manuscript while also researching Japanese intellectual diplomacy in the late 1600s.
