The  Fifteenth Annual NAJS conference will take place at the Centre for East Asian Studies at the University of Turku, Finland.

We also invite paper proposals on other topics related to contemporary Japanese society and culture, including politics, economy and business, sociology and anthropology, popular culture, literature, religion, and art.

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

Hilary (Spring) Term 2019

The convenors, Mark Baker, Helena F. S. Lopes, Chinami Oka, Frances O’Morchoe, and Woody Wu invite proposals for the Hilary (Spring) Term 2019 session of the Oxford International History of East Asia Research Seminar.

We invite fellow PhD students and early career researchers to submit proposals for seminar presentations on any aspect of the international and transnational history of East and Southeast Asia,particularly papers on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We look forward to proposals for papers on a broad range of international and transnational history topics, including not only traditional state-to-state relations, but also the flow of people, goods and ideas between states and/or non-state actors, the role of transnational organisations, and the importance of culture, identity, race and gender in international and transnational history, 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 invited speakers 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 13th January and 9th March 2019. Presentations are expected to last between 20 and 30 minutes and are followed by Q&A. We have modest funds to cover speakers’ travel to the seminar, but not from further afield than Western Europe.

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 25th November 2018. Any queries are also welcome, to the same address.

Further information about the seminar, including details of our programme of recent 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.
