The University of California, Berkeley Center for Japanese Studies will host the “Making Cold War Homes: The Politics of Domesticity in the U.S. Military Occupation of Okinawa” from 4 to 6 p.m. at 554 Barrows Hall. Mire Koikari, associate professor, women’s studies, University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, will speak. This presentation focuses on domestic reformism in U.S.-Occupied Okinawa, where science-technical education, foreign aid, and military expansionism converged to turn Okinawan home into a crucial site of cold war politics in the 1950s and 1960s.
