Colloque organisé du 1er au 3 septembre 2021
Date limite de candidature : 1 juin 2021

Organisateurs Sebestyén Hompot (Ph.D. Candidate of Sinology at the Institute of East Asian Studies, University of Vienna, Austria)
Co-organizers: Tanja Kotik (Ph.D. Candidate of Contemporary History, University of Graz, Austria), Sabine Hinrichs (Ph.D. Candidate of Sinology at the Institute of East Asian Studies, University of Vienna, Austria)

Since the late 20th century, the concept of “Global History” has gained increasing popularity in Western academia. Global History generally denotes a perspective of history which includes various levels of analysis beyond the nation-state-focused mainstream of modern-era historiography. In recent decades, translations of the term and discussions of its relevance have increasingly entered the academic discourse in China as well.

The aim of the present workshop is to support academic networking, exchange, and discussion among young researchers interested in China-related global history and historiography. Participants will be invited to present their research and act as commentators, as well as session chairs.

A non-exhaustive list of possible research questions includes the following:

  • How can terms like “empire”, “world-system(s)”, “world-region” and other analytical approaches/categories of Global History be used to explain historical events and developments in dynastic/modern China in a global context?
  • How does a regional East Asian perspective of history contribute to the global view?
  • Did China have a pre-modern tradition of world/global historiography? If yes, how can it be characterized (in terms of geographical scope and perspective, ideology, etc.)?
  • How is the growing interest towards a global perspective of Chinese history related to China’s (re)emergence as a global power?
