Self Intro: K. M. Lawson

Filed under: — K. M. Lawson @ 11:00 pm

My name is Konrad Mitchell Lawson and later this month I will be starting a PhD in history in the United States. I am interested in issues related to treason, traitors, and collaboration in the modern history of East Asia.

During my masters degree, I studied International Affairs and have long had an interest in Sino-Japanese relations. Since then my interests have broadened to include Korea. On this blog, I think most of my postings will be related to modern Japanese history but also how Japan fits into the larger regional and global history of the 20th century. I am most familiar with the 大正 and 昭和 periods of modern Japanese history.

I will mostly be posting in English but will frequently include quotes from various sources in Japanese, occasionally with translation. Feel free to comment in Japanese or English. For those who want to read more, my personal blog can be found here.

    Hi there. It is Sakaya’s website that has taken me here. I am glad to see our GWU’s M&R site linked here, but want to point out the updated address is http://www.gwu.edu/~memory (also at memoryandreconciliation.org).

    See you at Harvard in the fall!
