Meiji at 150

Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 084, Dr. David Ambaras (North Carolina State University) Ambaras, David; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Ambaras retraces the intimate and illicit networks of regional mobility in East Asia to rethink nation-centric narrative of modern Japanese and Chinese history. We discuss how the Meiji Restoration reshaped the East Asian Sinosphere, the lives of traders, women, and children living in Japan’s “imperial underworlds,” and how the upending of the East Asian order once again in 1945 impacted transnational families.
