Dr. Susan Burns is a professor of history and East Asian languages and civilizations at the University of Chicago. She is a historian of nineteenth-century Japan and is interested in continuities and ruptures between what conventional periodization terms Japan's "early modern" and "modern" eras. Her recent research has explored the history of medicine in the Tokugawa period, including questions related to the history of the body as it came to be conceptualized within medical and legal discourses.
