Louise Young is Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her work on modern Japan has focused on the relationship between culture and empire, urban modernism between the wars, and most recently, a social and intellectual history of the idea of class. In several new essays Young has returned to the subject of empire, especially the post-empire and contemporary geo-politics in East Asia. She is the author of Japan's Total Empire: Manchuria and the Culture of Wartime Imperialism (1998) and Beyond the Metropolis: Second Cities and Modern Life in Interwar Japan (2013).
