Charlotte is a PhD student in History and EALC, focusing on the social and environmental history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Japan. Her dissertation project looks at the development of capitalism in Japan from the perspective of the nomadic fishing groups who were incorporated into it. It considers how changes to the underlying mode of production transformed the labor, sustenance activities, and lifeways of these groups. More broadly, her interests include political economy, political ecology, gender and community structures, nomadic groups, and the history of agrarian and rural lifeways.
