Juliet Nebolon is Assistant Professor of American Studies. She received her Ph.D. in American Studies from Yale University. Her research and teaching bring a transnational perspective to the study of race, indigeneity, and gender in the United States, with a particular focus on U.S. war and empire in Asia and the Pacific Islands. Nebolon’s book, Settler Militarism: World War II in Hawai‘i and the Making of U.S. Empire (Duke UP, forthcoming 2024), focuses on the martial law period in Hawai‘i during the Pacific War.  This interdisciplinary project explores the overlapping regimes of settler colonialism and militarization in the domains of public health, domestic science, education, land acquisition, and internment.  Her article in American Quarterly, “‘Life Given Straight from the Heart’: Settler Militarism, Biopolitics, and Public Health in Hawai‘i during World War II,” was awarded the American Studies Association’s 2018 Constance M. Rourke Prize. She recently published a second article, “Settler-Military Camps: Internment and Prisoner of War Camps across the Pacific Islands during World War II,” in the Journal of Asian American Studies.
