Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 017, Dr. Kate McDonald (University of California-Santa Barbara) McDonald, Kate; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. McDonald repositions tourism starting in the late-Meiji period as a site for establishing claims to empire in Taiwan, Korea, and Manchuria. We discuss the imperial origins of the domestic tourist industry, the place of Korea in colonial advertising and travel itineraries, and the introspective lessons students can draw from studying Meiji period reforms.
