Jaime González Bolado has joined the Aftermath project as a PhD candidate at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Department of History. Jaime holds a B.A and M.A. in History from the Universidad de Cantabria (2016-2017), and an M.A. in Japanese Studies from the Universidad de Zaragoza (2020). His research interests lie in the study of Japanese history through accounts written by European missionaries and their patrons, the Christian lords. The goal of his PhD is to show the importance that these converts had in the development of the Imjin War, and to bring to light aspects of the conflict neglected by the Asian sources.
Jaime is supervised by Prof. Rebekah Clements, Dr. Giuseppe Marino, and. Dr. Bernat Hernandez.
