Dr KJ Chen publishes article “Fishing for Oil: Natural-Resource Management between the United States and Maritime East Asia in the 1970s” in The Journal of American-East Asian Relations.

Drawing on primary/secondary sources from Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and the US, Dr KJ Chen's research reintroduces the oil exploration projects of the western Pacific into the context of Cold War history to provide the necessary historical lens to understand the contours of the shifting geopolitical structure in 1970s maritime East Asia.
