GRAMLICH-OKA Bettina

Professor
Japanese History
M.A., Sophia University
PH.D., Tübingen University

Research and Teaching Interests:

In my research, I concentrate on the early modern period in Japanese history, or Tokugawa period (1600-1868). While I worked and still work on gender, economic thought and medical history, lately I am involved intensively in network studies.

In teaching, I implement in relevant courses the innovative Reacting-to-the-Past-Pedagogy. Currently I develop a textbook for this method, which will be co-written by my colleagues Professors Mathew Thompson and James McKinley.
