This month, Hoover Library & Archives welcomes Kaoru “Kay” Ueda as the first-ever curator for Hoover's Japanese Diaspora Initiative. Kay brings a unique set of global professional and personal experience to the Hoover Institution, having worked in the business world in the U.S., Japan, Hong Kong, and the U.K. Kay studies long-distance diaspora communities in historical archaeology, combining the study of primary source documents and material culture and hopes that her own diaspora experience will help in her role as curator for the JDI.  Kay has most recently worked at the International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History at Boston University. She received a BA in linguistics and French from Kwansei Gakuin University, an MBA from the University of Chicago, an MLA in anthropology/archaeology from Harvard Extension School, and a PhD in archaeology from Boston University.
