Research and writing leading to publication of a book on the social history of the Japanese city of Edo (now Tokyo) and its place in the world, based on the surviving handwritten letters of an ordinary nineteenth-century Japanese woman.  

This project uses the history of an ordinary Japanese woman to reconsider the social history of Edo from the perspective of a rural migrant to the city. Aimed at a general audience, it introduces readers outside the field to the history of the city and the position of Japan in the world during the first half of the nineteenth century.
