Japan Forum caught up with caught up with Bettina Gramlich-Oka to talk about her new edited volume: Women and Networks in Nineteenth-Century Japan.

In the podcast we talk with Professor Gramlich-Oka about the origins of the edited volume; how written materials offer insights into the diversity of roles performed by women across time and space; how women's mobility was not often self-chosen but involuntary and initiated by men; and her love of diary writing.
