Keiko McDonald

In other sad news, I learned on KineJapan that Keiko McDonald, a scholar of Japanese cinema and a professor at the University of Pittsburgh, died of an accident on the 14th. She was a most versatile and prolific researcher and her absence will present a significant loss for the Japanese cinema studies community. I hope her last works, a special issue of Postscript and a book on Shimizu Hiroshi, will have no problem getting published.
