Dr. Sachiko Kawai discusses her recently published book, Uncertain Powers, which explores the power of Japanese royal women who held many landed estates during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Despite their enormous landholdings, these women faced challenges to actually get resources from their estates. While pointing out gender disparity at court society, she explains female landlords’ coping strategies and the complex interplay of authority and power.

After receiving a PhD in history from the University of Southern California, Dr. Kawai taught as a College Fellow at Harvard and later served as a postdoctoral scholar at the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies. She is currently an assistant professor at the National Institutes for the Humanities/ National Museum of Japanese History.

This colloquium series is made possible by the generous support of the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.

This event is cosponsored by Medieval and Early Modern Studies.
