Thesis : The Shūseikan of the Satsuma Domain: An Example of Early Industrialization at the Dawn of the Meiji Revolution
Directed by Annick Horiuchi and Virginie Fonteneau

Presentation

My research in the history of technology focuses on the large-scale modernization enterprise organized by Lord Shimazu Nariakira in the Satsuma domain at the end of the Edo period (19th century). His innovative approach was based on education, technical innovation in all fields of production (agricultural, crafts and industrial) and the modernisation of the military forces according to the Western model.
