Daniel Botsman is a professor of history at Yale University. He teaches courses on the history of Japan from 1500 to the present. His publications include a translation of the memoirs of a prominent post-war foreign minister, Okita Saburo: A Life In Economic Diplomacy, and a study of the history of punishment from the 16th to the 20th centuries, Punishment and Power in the Making of Modern Japan. We talk with Professor Botsman about his research paper entitled Freedom without Slavery? ‘Coolies,’ Prostitutes, and Outcastes in Meiji Japan’s ‘Emancipation Moment.’
