I am an historian of Modern and Contemporary Japan. As a scholar I am particularly interested in the history of class and gender. My first book, Gender Struggles: Wage-earning Women and Male-Dominated Unions in Postwar Japan (Harvard, 2010; available at https://amzn.to/2F0mN9T), is an interdisciplinary study of the forgotten history of wage-earning Japanese women who during the 1950s militantly contested the socialist labor movement's revival of many prewar notions of normative gender roles. My second book, Mobilizing Japanese Youth: The Cold War and the Making of the Sixties Generation (forthcoming from Cornell), examines the forces that shaped the political consciousness of Japanese youth who chose to engage in radical politics during the 1960s and 1970s. It unpacks how notions of class and gender shaped the discourses produced by, and for, young men and women of the 'Sixties Generation'. I am also Founding Series Editor of the academic monograph series SOAS Studies in Modern and Contemporary Japan, published in association with Bloomsbury (available at: https://amzn.to/352OBVO).
