With residences in East and Southeast Asia and a PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, Hannah Sigur has taught and written on the traditional arts of Japan and East Asia at universities in California, USA and is a Contributing Editor, Smarthistory.org. She researches the material culture of internationalism in Meiji Japan and America’s Gilded Age.

On the architecture of national identity at international expositions from 1867 – 1915, her essay on the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair’s iconic White City appears in What Happened? An Encyclopedia of Events that Changed America Forever, Vol. III (ABC-Cleo, 2010), while “Neoclassicism in Translation: Japan’s Hôôden at the World’s Columbian International Exposition, 1893” appears in Expanding Nationalisms at World’s Fairs: Identity, Diversity and Exchange 1855 – 1914 (Routledge 2017)
