Project Title
Imperial Vocabulary: Public Political Discourse of Trans-Pacific Japan, 1868-1912

From Japan to Indonesia to Brazil and beyond, my project leverages digitized archives of Japanese metropolitan and diaspora newspapers to examine how the meanings of newly coined political terms metamorphosed over time and space during Japan's transition into a modern empire.
