Do you live in Japan?
i've been translating an essays book by Takahata Isao on the "sato vs machi". I'm not an antropologist but a cultural project manager with a particular look at the role of antropology in the making of new society, thus new cultural projects such as arts, music, urban organisation, literature and so on.
Takahata is a famous animation director, teacher and colleague of Miyazaki, and he's considered an intellectual of animation, because of his many written studies on the traditional culture left in the modern Japan.
Meantime, even though it's not a piece of academic writing, I warmly suggest to watch his movies "Pompoko" and "Omoide poro poro".
