Congratulations to the following recipients of the 20th Century Japan Research Awards for 2020!
- Camila Gutiérrez for her topic, “Gendered Visual Narratives: Chicana, Latin American, and Japanese modes of telling.”
- Daniel Milne for his topic, “Seeds of the Revival of Postwar Tourism in Occupied Japan.”
The Award, first offered in 1999, is co-sponsored by the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies and the University of Maryland Libraries.
Each year these partners accept applications for grants to support research in the Gordon W. Prange and East Asia Collections on topics related to the period of the Allied Occupation of Japan and its aftermath, 1945-1960.
Holders of a Ph.D. or an equivalent degree are eligible to apply, as are graduate students who have completed all requirements for the doctorate except the dissertation. The competition is open to scholars in all parts of the world and from any discipline, but historical topics are preferred.
