Hello and welcome to the website of David Fedman. I'm a PhD Candidate in Japanese and Korean history at Stanford University, specializing in the environmental history and historical geography of Japanese empire. In addition to my dissertation project on Japanese forestry in colonial Korea, my research interests include East Asian cartography, Japanese mountaineering history, and the history of the earth sciences in Asia. I'm also, a bit further afield, engaged in an ongoing collaborative research project on the strategic bombing of Japan during World War II.
