学生に一言

Don’t be afraid to speak up in class.

We are often worried about making mistakes, but your class is a learning environment and we can learn much from our mistakes. Mistakes and failures are the seeds of your eventual success.

Don’t hold back!

授業では遠慮しないで意見を述べて下さい。

間違えが怖くて言いたいことを口に出さない人や、失敗が嫌で行動しない人が多いと思いますが、間違い・失敗から人はたくさん学ぶことが出来ます。失敗は次に活かせる、成功の種です。たくさん失敗して、たくさん学びましょう。

自己紹介
I was trained in Economic History (BSc. & PhD) at the London School of Economics, with an interlude studying an MA in Japanese Studies (major, Japanese history) at the School of Oriental and African Studies. During this time I developed a strong interest on the socioeconomic history of East Asia, in particular Japan, and reflecting this my research has come to focus on several topics, including colonial and postcolonial migration in Northeast Asia, colonial economic development, and migratory labour (dekasegi). More recently I have also begun conducting research on the local impact of Japan’s integration into global trade in the mid-to-late nineteenth century through the lens of Hakodate, one of Japan’s first open trading ports (often known as "treaty ports"). Although this study is still in its infancy, I hope it can help nuance our understanding of commercial interactions in the treaty port setting, and the impact of international trade on local productive systems. Originally from London, I have previously taught at Heidelberg University (Germany) and the London School of Economics (UK) in subjects such as global economic history, the socioeconomic history of East Asian industrialization, and comparative courses on colonial and postcolonial migration. In my classes, I try to incorporate the interests and ideas of all students on a given topic, and also try to make the format as interactive as possible. I’m looking forward to seeing you in class!
