Current affiliation:Junior Researcher(Assistant Professor),Waseda University
My major is Japanese modern history but now a days also contemporary East Asia's area studies. I was a archivist in National archives in Japan, and cram school teacher. Now I am a Junior researcher and project manager in Organization for Regional and Inter-regional Studies, Waseda University.
The main theme is the Taiwanese movement for local autonomy in the interwar period. The various political conflicts that occurred in Taiwan during the Japanese colonial era were influenced not only by colonialism but also by Taiwanese history prior to modernization. I wrote "Colonial Taiwan and Self-Government The Spirit of Autonomous Space"does not focus on the legitimacy of colonialism but pays attention to the Taiwanese who sought to reform colonial rule into autonomy by applying British and American constitutional ideas.
