Eiichiro Azuma is Alan Charles Kors Term Associate Professor of History and Asian American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He is specialized in Asian American history with an emphasis on Japanese Americans and transpacific migration, as well as Japanese colonialism and U.S.-Japan relations. Azuma’s interest in migration and transnationalism has stemmed partially from his personal experience as an immigrant from Japan. He holds a M.A. in Asian American Studies (1992) and a Ph.D. in history (2000), both from University of California at Los Angeles. He has taught at Penn since January 2001. Since Fall 2009, Azuma has held the Alan Charles Kors Endowed Term Chair in History. In 2008-2009, he was also a recipient of the Donald D. Harrington Faculty Fellowship from the University of Texas, Austin.
