Migration back to Japan: economic experiences of Japanese repatriates, 1945-56

The funding was gratefully used to conduct research for my project, pay tuition and to pay conference attendance fees. I had a productive year; much of the data input and writing has been completed. I was able to access the employment records of the South Manchuria Railway Company required for my final core chapter.

In October 2014, I participated in a doctoral competition, organised by the Comparative Histories of Asia group of the Institute of Historical Research, and won first prize. These were all made possible by the generous funding from the Economic History Society. I sincerely appreciate it.
