10th research meeting (January 8, 2022)

On January 8, 2022, we held an online workshop as the 10th Caravan research meeting. We invited Prof. Yuka Tsuchiya (Kyoto University) and discussed thermonuclear tests in Pacific Ocean and their effects on tuna fisheries in Japan, based on her lecture entitled ‘Tuna Fisheries and Thermonuclear Tests, 1954-63.’

We also discussed various issues including how to analyse the Pacific Ocean and globality from the microscopic dimensions such as tuna fishery; and the research methods that cut across diplomatic, international, cultural and industrial histories.
