2013-2014 20th Century Japan Research Grants Awarded

In December, the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies and the University of Maryland Libraries awarded the 20th-Century Japan Research Award for 2013-2014 to three applicants.  These three researchers will use the research stipend to conduct research using the University of Maryland’s Gordon Prange Collection.  The Miller Center received 13 excellent research proposals and the selection committee, which included History Department Professors Marlene Mayo and Sarah Cameron, chose the following three applicants:

-Professor Julia Bullock (Emory University)--"Coeducation in Japan under Allied Occupation"

-Dr. Deokyho Choi (University of Cambridge)--"Crucible of the Post-Empire: Decolonization, Race, and Cold War Politics in U.S.-Japan-Korea Relations, 1945-1952"

-Professor Emer O'Dwyer (Oberlin College)--"Searching for 'Truth' in Occupation-Era Magazines"


Here is a UMD Libraries Wordpress announcement of the award.
