Announcing NCC’s New Digital Media Manager

With all the changes that have come about in academia and librarianship because of the current and ongoing COVID pandemic, NCC will also be addressing the need for change as we head into our 30th year as an organization. We will be working closely with the NCC Council and broader community to identify ways we can use new technologies to more effectively carry out our mission, while also reducing costs in the face of potentially difficult economic times ahead.  Along with change comes the need to prepare our constituencies for the new directions we will be pursuing through listservs and social media outlets. NCC is pleased to announce that we have hired Dr. Paula R. Curtis as Digital Media Manager to help us during this transition. 

Paula comes to NCC with an impressive background as a Japan scholar. She is a historian of medieval Japan and is presently a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer in History at Yale University with the Council on East Asian Studies. Her current book project focuses on metal caster organizations from the twelfth to sixteenth centuries and their relationships with elite institutions. She also works on the history of documentary forgery in premodern Japan. In addition, Dr. Curtis collaborates in several online projects, including the Digital Humanities Japan initiative; an online database for digital resources related to East Asia; the blog What can I do with a B.A. in Japanese Studies; and the digital archive Carving Community: The Landis-Hiroi Collection.

Feel free to contact Paula if you have any questions about or suggestions for social media content. (Her NCC email contact is:  And please join us in welcoming Paula onboard!
