In the recent past, there has been an upsurge in scholarly interest in the history of the Japanese Empire, as well as a broadening of the way that the topic is approached and placed into transnational and comparative perspectives.

This public online event, hosted by the UC Irvine History Department, will explore this phenomenon with a focus on a quartet of books published in 2020: David Fedman’s Seeds of Control, Kelly Hammond’s China’s Muslims and Japan’s Empire, Sarah Kovner’s Prisoners of the Empire, and Rana Mitter’s China’s Good War.

The historians who wrote these books will make short presentations about them, and then two discussants, Alexis Dudden and Seiji Shirane, will provide comments on how the works fit into and diverge from standard patterns in the historiography of Japan’s imperial ambitions and actions. A general discussion among the panelists will follow, along with a question and answer session involving the audience.

Jeffrey Wasserstrom will moderate.
