Anne Giblin Gedacht, Ph.D

Assistant Professor of History
Department of History

My research focuses primarily on the social and cultural history of modern Japan from 1852-1953. My interests include Japanese migration, regional identity formation, borderland studies, settler colonialism, and nation-building. Presently, I am working on a book manuscript titled _Turning North: Migration, Mobility, and Identity in Japan's Tohoku Region, 1872-1937_. This work will examine the domestic history of Japan using a global perspective with case studies in the Philippines, colonial Manchuria, Canada, the United States, and Brazil. Over the past decade I have lived and worked in Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Israel, Singapore, and Brunei.
