Alan Christy: “The Keystone of the Pacific: A History of America in Okinawa”

January 18, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:15 pm

| Stevenson Event Center | Free

Alan ChristyA plan by the U.S. and Japan to build a new military base in a place called Henoko has brought Okinawa into the news lately. Prof. Christy, an expert in the history of Japan, social science, colonialism, and nationalism, will present a history of American Japanese post WWII relations specifically as they pertain to Okinawa. This will set the stage for looking at modern relations with Okinawa, where a recent gubernatorial election revealed strong opposition to the base construction.

Alan S. Christy is Associate Professor of History, East Asian Studies Director, and Co-Director, Center for the Study of Pacific War Memories.
