Prof. (Dr.) John Clammer is Professor of Sociology in JSLH and has been on the faculty at JGU for the last four years. Prior to that he was Professor of Comparative Sociology and Asian Studies at Sophia University, Tokyo and then professor and advisor to the Rector at the United Nations University. He has taught and researched all around the world and has held regular or visiting posts at Oxford, Weimar, Australian National University, Buenos Aires, Pondicherry, Singapore and Warwick, and probably somewhere else that I have forgotten. He currently works mainly on the interface of culture and development, the sociology of the arts, and issues of sustainability, but in the course of his career has roamed through just about every area of sociology and anthropology.
