Hiromi Mizuno, Faculty Fellow, Fall 2008
Hiromi Mizuno (History, College of Liberal Arts): “The Politics of Belonging: The History of Population Policy in Postwar Japan”
Mizuno found that interaction with scholars from outside her field helped her to think harder about some of her project‘s basic conceptions. In particular, she found their comments and suggestions to her presentation to be very valuable. Much of her fellowship time was spent reading primary materials and conceptualizing the project. Following her fellowship, she received a Grant-in-Aid of Research, Artistry, and Scholarship from the Graduate School, an Imagine Fund award and a travel grant from the Office of International Programs.
