Call for Proposals: The Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar

Call for Proposals: The Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar

14 June 2016

The conveners, Pete Millwood, Helena Ferreira Santos Lopes, Nelson Kaiho So and Sheng Peng, invite proposals for the 2016-2017 session of the Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar.

We welcome 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 international and transnational organisations, and the importance of culture, identity, race and gender in diplomacy, 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 conveners are current graduate students and the seminar provides a welcoming environment for fellow PhD students and early career researchers to present research at any stage of completion to an audience of students and Oxford faculty members. A first session of seminars will be held during Michaelmas term, between 10th October and 2nd December 2016. Presentations are expected to last between 20 and 30 minutes and will be followed by Q&A.

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 Friday 15 July 2016.
Any queries are also welcome, to the same address.

The seminar is kindly hosted and supported by the Oxford China Centre.
