Independent Scholar
Dr. William Underwood's doctoral research analyzed the origins and development of the reparations movement for Chinese forced labor in Japan during World War Two, while locating ongoing redress efforts within the emerging global trend toward repairing historical injustices. He directly observed forced labor reparations work involving Chinese, Korean and Allied POW victims at the grassroots level in Fukuoka from 2002 until 2008, when he returned to California. Since 2005 Mr. Underwood has served as a coordinator for The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus, a peer-reviewed open source journal available at . Dr. Underwood received his Ph.D. in political science from Kyushu University while teaching at Fukuoka Jo Gakuin University and Kurume Institute of Technology as well as two years in Aomori for the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. He received an M.A. in Government from California State University, Sacramento, where his thesis examined the Japanese American redress movement. He also has a B.A. in Government-Journalism from CSUS. He has worked as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer, and as a Japanese-English technical translator in the semiconductor industry.
