Brian Steininger will teach in the East Asian Humanities Sequence during the 2021–2022 academic year.

He studies poetry, exegesis, and the materials thereof in pre-Tokugawa Japan. Recent papers have analyzed the local reinterpretation of Chinese tonal prosody, expurgated manuscripts in the maintenance of household scholarly lineages, and the conflicting motivations of early woodblock printing projects in Buddhist monasteries. He is several years into a book project examining the repercussions of a sudden flood of information technology precipitated by the open trade policies of the Mongol Empire ca. 1300.
