History of contemporary East Asia: sources, methods, objects

October 04 2021 - June 07 2022 - Seminar

This seminar aims to bring together specialists in modern East Asian history. Each session will be based on the presentation of a corpus of sources (public and private, handwritten and printed, literary, oral, iconographic and audiovisual, material and digitalized), followed by a discussion of methodological and historiographical problems raised by its use. The geographical scope of the seminar is East Asia, corresponding to present-day China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, with an emphasis on regional, transnational, and comparative approaches.

Organizers: Ken Daimaru (University of Paris), Sheldon Garon (Princeton University), Victor Louzon (Sorbonne University)
