Transpacifica is primarily written by Graham Webster, a fellow researching U.S.–China Relations at the Yale Law School China Center. Here, since 2006, I write about East Asian politics mostly in China and Japan, the Internet and society, the environment, and contemporary art. Unavoidably, I sometimes veer off topic—even with a topic as large as the Pacific.
