We invite students, faculty, and scholars from other academic communities to present original work that speaks across the national lines of East Asia as well as the disciplinary lines of the academic community. While recognizing the importance of the nation-state in historical understanding, we believe that it is just as important to give exposure to transnational, regional, and global themes that have been obscured by the national paradigm. Such approaches can prove particularly fruitful when undertaken at a level of understanding beyond traditional departmental and specialty boundaries.

This workshop meets on alternate Thursdays during the academic year in the John Hope Franklin Room (SSR 224) from 4:00 to 5:30 PM.

Faculty sponsors: Professors Susan Burns, Jacob Eyferth, and Johanna Ransmeier

Student coordinator: Carl Kubler
