Genevieve Tan is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania. She specializes in the history of modern Japan and Taiwan. Tan argues that Japan's form of colonial administration in Taiwan fostered an environment that was less segregated than the colonies which were controlled by Western powers. Tan highlights this point by discussing Japan's intermarriage laws and the household registration system. She also discusses notions of nationhood and citizenship as it was understood by the Japanese government.
