The Yale Environmental History Colloquium features works-in-progress by Yale faculty and students. Typically meeting 4-5 times per semester, the Colloquium offers participants an opportunity to workshop dissertation and book chapters, dissertation prospectuses, conference presentations, article drafts, and public humanities projects. This week features Thomas Monaghan, a third year PhD student in history. His research examines sugar and island societies in Japan, the Ryukyu archipelago, and Taiwan across the early-modern to modern periods, drawing connections between Japan’s sugar history and that of the Atlantic world.
