We invite students, faculty, and scholars from other academic communities to present creative and original work that speaks across the national lines of East Asia as well as the disciplinary lines of the academic community. Presentations that incorporate multidisciplinary and/or transregional historical perspectives are especially encouraged. While recognizing the continuing importance of the nation-state in historical understanding, we believe that it is just as important to give exposure to themes of a transnational and regional or global nature 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 biweekly on Thursdays during term time in the John Hope Franklin Room (SS 224) from 4 to 6pm.

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

Student coordinators: Jessa Dahl and Erin Newton
