Professor Faison’s first book, Managing Women: Disciplining Labor in Modern Japan, was published by the University of California Press in 2007. She is co-editor with Dr. Ruth Barraclough (Australian National University) of Sexing Class: Gender and Labor in Korea and Japan, which was published by Routledge in 2009. She teaches courses on East Asian and Japanese history, and in 2012 was the recipient of the Regents’ Award for Superior Teaching. She is currently working on two book-length projects. The first is titled Atomic Memories: Legacies of the Cold War in Japan and the United States. The second is a social and political history of twentieth century Japan in the form of a biography of the socialist feminist Yamakawa Kikue (1890-1980).
