Meiji at 150 Podcast, Episode 101, Dr. Kirsten Ziomek (Adelphi University) Ziomek, Kirsten; Grunow, Tristan


In this episode, Dr. Ziomek highlights the diversity of the prewar Japanese empire by surveying native reactions to Japanese colonialism in four locations: Hokkaidō, Taiwan, Micronesia, and Okinawa. We discuss Japanese administrative adaptations to local conditions, the scholarly advantages of using non-traditional sources including oral interviews, pictures, and material objects, the agency of native colonial subjects, and imperial tours to Tokyo.
