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

University of Oxford China Centre

Deadline: 3rd Dec 2017

Spring (Hilary) Term 2018 – University of Oxford China Centre

The convenors, Nelson K.H. So, Pete Millwood, Helena F.S. Lopes, Frances O’Morchoe, and Sheng Peng invite proposals for the spring (Hilary Term) 2018 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 convenors are current graduate students or early career researchers; 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. This session of seminars will be held during Oxford’s Hilary Term, which is between 14th January and 10th March 2018. Presentations are expected to last between 20 and 30 minutes and are 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 by Sunday 3rd December 2017. 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.
