Call for Proposals: The Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar
July 28, 2017
Autumn (Michaelmas) term 2017 – University of Oxford China Centre
The convenors of the Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar invite proposals for the autumn (Michaelmas) 2017 session.
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 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 convenors 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 staff. This session of seminars will be held during Oxford’s Michaelmas term, which is between 9th October and 1st December 2017. Presentations are expected to last between 20 and 30 minutes and are followed by comment and question from the audience.
Those interested in speaking are invited to send a title, an abstract no longer than 300 words, and a short biographical note to [email protected] by Friday 28th July 2017. Any queries are also welcome, to the same address.
