We are joined by Narusa Yamato, who will share a chapter titled “The Hachijō Island Condensed Milk Company: Livestock Experts, Local Notables, and Island Governors in Imperial Japan.” Registration is required for receiving the paper and zoom link, as well as to help us organize catering.
Narusa Yamato is a History PhD candidate at Stanford University. Tentatively titled “Milk for the Nation: A History of the Japanese Dairy Industry, 1840–1952,” her dissertation explores how the rise of the dairy industry assisted Japan’s transformation into a nation and empire.
