Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 048, Dr. Eric Han (College of William & Mary) Han, Eric; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Han recreates the scene of a gruesome murder in 1899 Yokohama to call on the history of treaty ports and extraterritoriality in the years leading up to and after the Meiji Restoration. We discuss the politics of treaty port selection and treaty revision, map the hybridized international culture of foreign settlements, complicate memories of foreign settlements as spaces of Westernization, and revisit the origins and communities of Yokohama’s vibrant Chinatown.
