Judd C. Kinzley commences fellowship at global dis:connect
Judd C. Kinzley from the University of Wisconsin-Madison joined global dis:connect in early July.
Judd Kinzley is a professor of modern Chinese history. His research treats borderlands, materiality and natural resources. He is currently working on the transnational exchange of Chinese raw materials for cash, weapons and industrial goods during World War II. This work reveals the transnational networks that developed to finance, produce and transport such resources. These trans-Pacific networks channelled objects in both directions during the war and served as the blueprint of a new postwar international order.
His project at gd:c focuses on the legacies of Allied wartime oil exports to China , the Middle East, SE Asia, the US and the European powers together.
