The Transition of Japan’s Stance on Manchuria: From “Barbarians” to Collaborators, the Seventeenth to Twentieth Century

Hometown: Ningbo, China

Department: History

Advisor: Eric Han

My honors thesis considers Japan’s imperialist project by examining the creation of the puppet state of Manchukuo in 1932. The 19th century imperialist Japan, which emerged from a modern international system of nation-states, transferred its perspective on the Manchu nation from “barbarians” that should be conquered by the civilized Japan, to a nation that is sovereign. Manchukuo was a de facto puppet state, though its integrity was justified by the self-determination of a nation-state.
