From 9/2017 – 6/2018:

Miriam Kingsberg Kadia is working on a generational biography of the cohort of Japanese human scientists active from the 1930s through the late 1960s—the “transwar period.” This project explores how scholars, at their moment of greatest authority over notions of national identity, (re)framed knowledge of Others in the context of imperialism, war, occupation, and independence.
