ALUMNI PROFILE

Ippei Shibata "Originally I felt it was a disadvantage to have a liberal arts degree entering into economics, but now I feel like I have a broader perspective because I had to study so many different kinds of things." More

Narrative Biography


I maintain two academic websites relevant to my research and teaching.  The history of a six decade
period in the nineteenth century when unfamiliar and destructive epidemics struck Brazil can be explored
at http://www.eraofepidemics.squarespace.com  I also am a co-founder, with Marcelo Bucheli, of the United
Fruit Historical Society:  http://www.unitedfruit.org  Both sites offer material that may be useful for classrooms
or research.
