Ignacio Adriasola is a historian of modern Japanese art. He received his PhD from Duke University in 2011.

His book in progress, Melancholy Sites, investigates responses by artists and intellectuals to the crisis of aesthetic and political representation triggered by the failed protests against the US-Japan Security Treaty of 1960, and in particular their reliance on depictions of the sexual and geographical margins in their articulation of an aesthetics of political disaffection.
