Japan Scholars Named for 2014

Congratulations to the following recipients of the 20th Century Japan Research Awards for 2013-2014.

Julia Bullock, Emory University, for the topic “Co-education in Japan under Allied Occupation.”

Deokhyo Choi, Cambridge University, for the topic, “Crucible of the Post-Empire: Decolonization, Race, and Cold War Politics in U.S.-Japan-Korea Relations, 1945-1952.”

Emer O’Dwyer, Oberlin College, for the topic, “Searching for ‘Truth’ in Occupation-Era Magazines.”


The awards are co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies.

Each year these partners accept applications for grants to support research in the University Libraries' Gordon W. Prange Collection and East Asia Collection on topics related to the period of the Allied Occupation of Japan and its aftermath, 1945-1960.

Holders of a Ph.D. or an equivalent degree are eligible to apply, as are graduate students who have completed all requirements for the doctorate except the dissertation. The competition is open to scholars in all parts of the world and from any discipline, but historical topics are preferred.
