Research Project: Base Towns: Everyday Life In and Around the Garrisons of Postwar Japan, 1945–1954

Dr. Mills earned his B.A. in History and M.A. in East Asian Studies from Yale University, and later received his M.A. and Ph.D. in History from Princeton University. His areas of research interest include cultural, public, and social history, with a focus on Japanese and U.S. history in the post-WWII period. He is currently working on a contribution to an edited volume on global narratives as part of a Princeton-Sciences Po collaboration and on research into Japanese civilians who impersonated U.S. service members during the Allied Occupation of Japan. During the 2020-21 academic year, Dr. Mills is planning to complete his book manuscript based on his dissertation, titled “Base Towns: Everyday Life In and Around the Garrisons of Postwar Japan, 1945–1954.”
