Koji Everard ('21) Awarded Hoopes Prize

Congratulations to Koji Everard ('21) on winning the 2021 Thomas T. Hoopes Prize for outstanding scholarly work for his thesis, titled "The Political Ecology of Sugar: Beet Agriculture and the Limits of State Power in Interwar Hokkaido," advised by Prof. Ian Miller in the Department of History.  Koji, a recipient of the RIJS's 2020 Henry Rosovsky Undergraduate Summer Research Grant, had originally planned to focus his research on New Zealand but was forced to transition his topic after University-sponsored travel was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and subsequently focused on archival and fieldwork research in his home country of Japan.
