Yasuko Sato is an Associate Professor of History at Lamar University. She teaches East Asian history, including Japanese visual culture, and the U.S. history survey, where she extensively covers race-related issues, such as slavery and the Civil Rights Movement. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. Her area of research is Japanese intellectual history and feminist thought in global contexts, with primary attention to aesthetics, ethics, and politics, matriculture, environmentalism, and the relevance of classical antiquity to the modern world. Her book manuscript, A Woman from the Land of Fire: Takamure Itsue and Japanese Antiquity, has been accepted into the Studies of the Weatherhead East Asia Institution publication series at Columbia University. She focuses on the history of ideas because she considers everything an idea, including art, and believes that if we change our thoughts, we can change the world.
