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."
