Professor Kingsberg is Associate Professor of History at the University of Coloardo Boulder and a recipient of the Gordon W. Prange Collection's Twentieth-Century Japan Research Award. She specializes in the study of modern Japan. Professor Kingsberg is currently working on a book manuscript provisionally titled, "The Field Generation: Japanese Human Scientists in the Transwar World." This collective biography examines the intellectual cohort active from the 1930s through the 1960s as it created and re-created knowledge of human diversity and national identity amid conditions of imperialism, war, occupation and independence.

 

This event is FREE and open to the public.
