The Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar

The Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar

by Pete Millwood
Trinity (Summer) Term 2018  – University of Oxford China Centre
The convenors, Frances O’Morchoe, Pete Millwood, Helena F.S. Lopes, Nelson So, and Sheng Peng invite proposals for the summer (Trinity Term) 2018 session of the Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar.
We invite fellow PhD students and early career researchers to submit proposals for seminar presentations on any aspect of the international history of East Asia, particularly papers on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We look forward to proposals for papers on a broad range of international history topics, including not only traditional state-to-state relations, but also the flow of people, goods and ideas between states, the role of transnational organisations, and the importance of culture, identity, race and gender in international history, to name just a few. Interdisciplinary approaches with a strong historical focus are also welcome.
The seminar is open to Oxford and non-Oxford speakers alike. All convenors are current graduate students or early career researchers; and the seminar provides a welcoming environment for invited speakers to present research at any stage of completion to an audience of students and Oxford faculty members. This session of seminars will be held during Oxford’s Trinity Term, which is between 22nd April and 16th June 2018. Presentations are expected to last between 20 and 30 minutes and are followed by Q&A. We have modest funds to cover speakers’ travel to the seminar, but not from further afield than Western Europe.
Those interested in speaking are invited to send a provisional title, an abstract no longer than 300 words, and a short biographical note to IHEAOxSeminar@gmail.com by Sunday 11th March 2018. Any queries are also welcome, to the same address.
Further information about the seminar, including details of our current spring term programme of events, is available on our Facebook page and our Twitter feed.
The seminar is kindly hosted and supported by the University of Oxford China Centre.
