Curriculum Vitae

Takashi Fujitani teaches and researches across a range of areas and topics. He focuses especially on modern and contemporary Japanese history, East Asian history, and transnational history (primarily U.S./Japan and Asia Pacific). Much of his past and current research has centered on the intersections of nationalism, colonialism, war, memory, racism, ethnicity, and gender, as well as the disciplinary and area studies boundaries that have figured our ways of studying these issues. He is currently completing a transnational and comparative study of ethnic and colonial soldiering (Koreans in Japan, Japanese in the U.S.).
