Jennifer M. Miller is a scholar of U.S. foreign relations since 1945, focusing on interactions between the United States and Northeast Asia. Her research examines the intersections between foreign policy and domestic ideas, ideologies, and political narratives; her work explores how new interactions between America and East Asia after World War II transformed both sides’ thinking about security, democratic order, citizenship, and economic vitality. Miller received her Ph.D. in the history of U.S. foreign relations and international history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012. She currently offers courses on the history of U.S. foreign relations, the Cold War, and World War II in the Pacific
