About the Speaker
Jun Uchida is Associate Professor and Vice-Chair of the Department of History at Stanford University. She is the author of Brokers of Empire: Japanese Settler Colonialism in Korea, 1876-1945 (Harvard University Press, 2011) and many articles that explore the history of overseas Japanese communities in the empire. In her new book, Provincializing Empire: Ōmi Merchants in the Japanese Transpacific Diaspora (University of California Press, 2023), she traces the diasporic lives and activities of the so-called Ōmi merchants from their Tokugawa heyday as entrepreneurial peddlers into the global age of empire, migration, and capitalism.
