About the speaker: 

Alexis Dudden is Professor of History at the University of Connecticut. She received her BA in East Asian Languages and Cultures from Columbia University in 1991 and her PhD in History (with distinction) from the University of Chicago in 1998. She is currently writing a book, The Opening and Closing of Japan, 1850-2020, about Japan’s territorial disputes and the changing meaning of islands in international law. Her earlier books include Troubled Apologies Among Japan, Korea, and the United States (Columbia University Press, 2008), which examines overlapping narratives of political apology and apologetic history among these three countries from 1945-present; and Japan’s Colonization of Korea: Discourse and Power (University of Hawaii Press, 2005), which analyzes the place of international law in Japan’s colonizing endeavors in Korea, drawing attention to the intersection of international law and colonial policy.
