John Hennessey is a postdoctoral fellow at the Hugo Valentin Centre, Uppsala University. A historian by training, his research interests include colonial history since 1850, modern Japanese history, transnational history, propaganda and popular imperialism. His current research project investigates the place of the Ainu people (indigenous to Hokkaido and the surrounding region) in Western racial taxonomies c. 1850-1940 and what this reveals about Western perceptions of "whiteness" at the time.
